Groups
The Knights (or Knights of the White Guardian) is a Doctor Who and Sci-Fi Fantasy fan club that has been around since 1987 and is based in Chicopee. They have monthly parties/meetings and go on trips and take part in other activities. They have a blog with information of interest as well as open dialogs about the news, reviews and articles of the day. http://kotwg.blogspot.com

Libraries
Forbes Library
Northampton, MA
www.forbeslibrary.org
Doctor Who DVD, VHS, books, audiobooks, etc.
Of course there are lots of public and college libraries throughout the Valley. I believe pretty much all of it is available through inter-library loan. Forbes deserves a special mention. It has lots of videos in general as they received the entire collection from the former (and amazing) Pleasant St. Video. You can also check out the library catalog online. Sixteen Acres Library in Springfield has a lot as well.

This place is awesome, locally-owned, and unique. Plus they deserve special mention, as the home of British Sci-Fi Night, hosted by Doctor Who Club of Western MA. You can also order dinner while watching movie or beforehand. Their bar/cafe, called "The Lobby" is opening up next door.
