Library Renovation Project


Please excuse our appearance as we enter into an exciting time of transition. 

The library will be closed on Tuesday, August 23 for approximately two weeks.  Everything will be moved into the former Hicks gymnasium, which has been renovated and looks great! Materials that are due can be dropped off at the book drop.  You can renew online ( - My Account) or call us and we will renew items for you.  We will make arrangements for you to pick up holds once we are somewhat settled, probably by Friday, August 26.  Call us (860 871-3620) and we will schedule a time to meet you with your items.  All the databases will be accessible at home except for which can only be accessed in the library. All programs and gatherings of ongoing groups will still meet in Conference Room A at their scheduled times.  Summer reading prizes to pick up? Call us and we will arrange that. Questions?  Call or email (  We will let you know as soon as the new area is ready to open.
