The Berkshire Athenaeum in Pittsfield, Massachusetts is the largest public library in the county – but its collection extends far beyond books. Outreach librarian Sam Reggio says the Athenaeum continues to grow its Library of Things, a collection of everything from tools and musical instruments to sleds and green screens that card holders can borrow for free. One item from the Library of Things is a seasonally appropriate device called a HappyLight.
