In light of the rising infection rate and recent news that a more contagious COVID-19 variant has been found in New Haven County, the Library will be temporarily closed for walk-in services effective Monday, January 11th. This decision was made in consultation with our local Health Director for the health and safety of our library users and staff, and to ensure that we will not be a contributing factor in community transmission.
The Library will continue offering Take Out & Delivery services, virtual programming, free downloadable books and movies, and phone assistance during all Take Out hours. Additionally, we are now offering Chromebooks for check out. Free WiFi is available in all of our garden, patio, and parking lot areas. Wireless printing services are also available. Just follow the instructions on our website, then call us at (203) 245-7365 to arrange for contactless pick up.
For those of you who will miss browsing our collection, we hope you’ll go to our website to see the rotating display of available new books, including selections for young readers on our Children’s and Teen pages. We’re also happy to make book recommendations over the phone and curate book bundles specific to your reading preferences.
For time sensitive requests that cannot be met through our contactless services, limited appointments will be available at the discretion of Library staff.
We will continue monitoring this situation carefully and look forward to reopening again as soon as safely possible. Until then, take care and stay safe.
