Library Services – Next Phase

What’s Happening in the Current Phase

Focus on Safety

We are committed to maintaining a safe environment for our patrons and our staff. The library has self-certified with the State of Connecticut for COVID-19 Prevention.  Patrons will be allowed into the library by appointment only.

    • The library has undergone a deep clean prior to re-opening to patrons by appointment.
    • All patrons and staff are required to wear a mask that completely covers their mouth and nose at all times.
    • Hand cleaner must be used before entering the building.
    • Maintain a social distance of at least six feet from other patrons and staff at all times.
    • Stay home if you are experiencing any symptoms of illness.
    • If you cannot or do not wish to wear a mask properly, please call the library and we will assist you via phone or Library-to-Go curbside service.
