Get a charge out of this!

courtesy station

The Athenaeum is pleased to announce a new amenity: personal devices and phones can be charged onsite using a  Courtesy Charging Station. Installed in  the library’s Food Zone, the freestanding, ADA compliant unit  provides 8 charging connectors (2 Apple Lightning; 2 Apple 30-pin; 3 micro USB; and 1 mini USB) centralized on a unit designed to charge a variety of devices and hold the devices on a supporting shelf.


The Courtesy Charging Station was purchased by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum, an all-volunteer organization with over  75 years of service to Pittsfield’s Public Library. Reference Librarian Madeline Kelly observes,  “We are routinely visited by patrons who need to charge their phone. This new Charging Station offers the most commonly used connectors and eliminates the safety hazard of adapter cords running across public areas. We’re so pleased the Friends stepped in, once again, to make this possible.”
