Letters to Newtown


The library will be closing at 6 pm today (Tuesday,March 3rd).  Stay safe out there.



The Children's Department will remain closed while the flood remediation work is being done. However, we'll still be conducting many programs for children in the meeting room, so check our website frequently to learn what's happening.

Storytime for 3 - 5 year olds will take place at their regular times in the meeting room until the children's department re-opens.  We added 2 additional weeks to the current session. Registration for the next series of story times takes place March 14-24.

You can still return your children's items and there is a selection of children's books and movies available on the second floor.

Did you know we have a 3D Printer at the library? 

Stop by the YA Department to sign up for a training session with one of our knowledgeable teen volunteers!
