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.


Borrowing & Returning Items

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.


Using Computers

Computer appointments are no longer necessary. Simply stop in at your convenience. You may have a 60-minute session, with 2 additional 15-minute extensions if nobody is waiting.


Book Seller

The Book Seller is open! Their hours are Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to noon and Wednesday and Thursday, 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

In addition, the Book Seller is accepting donations of up to 4 bags or boxes of gently used books and textbooks on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to noon at the garage, no appointment necessary. Please, no books that are yellow, soiled, moldy, or torn.


Collaboratory Services

The Collaboratory is open for self service with no in-person instruction available. We expect to resume full-service hours in late July. Collaboratory computers are available by appointment for digital media software.

Limited laser cutting is offered using library-provided supplies or your own materials. You may submit a laser cutter request via our online form. We also accept 3D print requests. Please call or stop by the Information Desk for details.
