• Tell Your Tale: You Do You Teen Summer Reading

Library Services Update

The Library Building Is Open to the Public


  • Monday-Friday: 9:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.



The Wallingford Public Library will continue to require that its patrons and staff wear masks in all public areas, including the Book Seller.

Children—for whom vaccinations are not yet available—will be especially at risk in our library if we stop wearing masks.

Please do your part to protect our community and continue to wear a mask in the Wallingford Public Library until further notice.


Summer Reading

This July and August we are exploring the concepts of self-expression and identity with our summer reading program, Tell Your Tale, the ultimate celebration of you and what you like to do! No matter your age, read and take part in activities to get to know yourself and others—and earn the chance to win great prizes along the way!

Wallingford Library is offering Park ‘n Pickup no-contact pickup service for library materials. Requests may be placed by phone or online catalog. Park ‘n Pickup is now available for both Wallingford residents and non-residents!

Items should be returned to the outdoor book drop anytime or inside the building during regular operation hours! Please return items promptly so that others may enjoy them.

Write a Letter to the Library: Be a Part of Our COVID-19 Archival Project

Letters to the Library logoIt can be easy to think of history as the past. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has made it clear that history happens every day.
