But this year as the shelter prepares for its second annual Bunny Run-Walk-Hop to End Homelessness fundraiser on Saturday, April 19, there's another reason to worry that the one 22-bed home in Adams might struggle to meet the needs of the region: the closure of Northern Berkshire Healthcare and

The public library has acquired 'Mill Girl' for permanent display.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Public Library will be the permanent home for the "Mill Girl."

William Oberst's 40-by-50 inch oil painting depicts a young girl working in a cotton mill, and inspired by the photographs of working children Lewis W. Hine took in 1911 at the Eclipse Mill.

New Library Director Mindy Hackner told the trustees last week that fundraising over the past year combined with a donation match from the Hunter family with the city has allowed the painting to remain in the library. The machine the girl is working at was produced by the James Hunter Machine Co.
