The Building Is Closed, But the Library Is Here For You!

Beginning May 20th, a limited number of staff will be in the library Monday-Friday, from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. to answer phones, empty the book drop, and work toward Park ‘n Pickup – a no-contact library materials pick up by appointment. Stay tuned for more information. Please note that overdue fines will not be charged during this time. You may return books, magazines, audiobooks, DVDs, and CDs in the book drop if you wish.

We are continuously reviewing updated guidelines from public health authorities and plan to reopen as soon as we safely can.

In the meantime, please enjoy our digital collections and online resources. Also visit our Safe at Home: Fun & Games and Information & Assistance pages. You may apply online to establish a new library card or to renew an existing one.

We appreciate your patience and understanding and miss seeing you every day.

We need your help with this project! You could even win a gift card to the Wallingford business of your choice. Learn more…
