Long Description:
In Monson, at the center of the town is the Monson Free Library.

The building is located at 2 High Street, near the junction of High Street and Main Street, near where a War memorial is located. There are two parts to the building: a older portion with a stone tower and clock, and a newer section off to the south. It is a free public library supported by the town.

On the tower is embedded:
"Memorial
18 Horatio Lyon 81
Library Building"

The library building is in fair shape. The building is basically sound, but tarps have been secured on the roof, scaffolding has been placed around the roof, and the clock is damaged. This was likely due to the tornado that had been through the town in June 2011. Monson center was heavily damaged from it. The library now appears to be operating.
