New Library Book Bags
Want to tote around your library books in style? The newly designed Welles-Turner Library book bags are here. They’re lightweight, colorful and large enough to hold a lot of books, DVDs, etc. The design is simple and serves as a reminder of how to access the library via the Internet. A bargain at only $1.00 each! Show your support for the library, and buy a book bag or two. Thank you to the Friends of the Library for subsidizing the cost of the bags.
Book a Librarian
"Book a Librarian" is an opportunity for anyone with a valid library card to reserve one-on-one time with a librarian. A reference librarian will be available to help you with setting up an email account, using an eReader, locating genealogical information, using reference databases or any other library-related topics.
To make an appointment for a 30-minute session, call Reference at 860-652-7720. Please let the librarian know what you would like assistance with. Bring your eReader, if applicable. There is a limit of two sessions per month, and you must have a valid Connecticut library card.
