The Children's Department is
getting ready to reopen!!
Our temporary Children's space will be closed beginning January 11 so we can start moving everything back into our newly-renovated department! Beginning January 4, 2021, some Children's materials will be moved to the adult floor, near the New Haven Avenue entrance so you can still browse and borrow books.
Children's staff will continue to host online programs, answer email/phone and
pull holds if materials are accessible.
Please call 203-783-3312
or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Plans are being finalized for our COVID-safe re-opening activities - stay tuned!
