• The library will be closed Monday, July 4th in observance of Independence Day

Elevator Unavailable Starting July 5th

The library’s elevator will be unavailable from July 5th to mid-September while a new electric elevator is installed.

If you are unable to use the stairs to access the library’s main level, please know there are a few options. You can:

  • park on North Main Street and enter the library through the front door.
  • schedule a Park ‘n Pickup. If you don’t know what that is, call us and we’ll explain it!
  • visit a library in another town (like North Haven). You can use your library card at any public library in Connecticut!

We appreciate your patience and understanding. We know this will be a disruptive process, but the end result will definitely be worth the inconvenience.

illustration of two people in profile with talk bubblesIn our second conversation with Aqua Drakes and Katie Burton, we will engage people in identifying ways to successfully build and maintain authentic community relationships. We’ll discuss and learn from successful models of community-building now as well as imagine possibilities for an anti-racist future.

Drakes and Burton Consulting offers history-based courses and conversational workshops about race and equity, focusing on systemic and interpersonal bias. They provide actionable strategies with real-world, anti-racist applications, and cultivate opportunities for individuals and groups to learn, reflect, and imagine new possibilities.

The death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020 reignited protests and discussion around police brutality, white supremacy, and systemic racism. Join us for this ongoing series of open and empathetic conversations about race, community, and opportunities for change and healing. All are welcome.
