Does wood need to acclimate to a new environment?

I just had a dulcimer making kit delivered from Folkcraft. ( Only two weeks between sending the order, and the delivery.) Should I let the wood just set a spell in order to get acclimated to it's new environment? Seems like I've read it was necessary, when you move wood from one area, to another.
