Why does the library need to close?
All areas of the building will be impacted by construction and/or reconfiguration. It makes good economical sense to close the building for the safety of our patrons and to expedite the project.
Where can I return my library materials?
The drop box at Crest Road will be in operation until January 22nd, after which time it will not be available for any returns. A drop box will be installed at Park Road Extension and should be operational on Tuesday, January 22nd. For your convenience, library materials may be returned to other libraries. If you are able to select Woodbury, Southbury or Howard Whittemore (Naugatuck) libraries, it would be advantageous to us for organizational reasons.
Will I be able to renew online?
Online renewals will operate as normal. Other libraries may be contacted for renewals by phone.
How will library fines be applied?
Library fines will be forgiven for the month of January. If returning or renewing material is difficult for you due to weather or other circumstances, please feel free to return them when it is convenient for you during the month of January.
What will happen to materials that I had on the holds cart at Crest Road?
We called all patrons to advise them to pick up their holds by January 31st. Unfortunately, any material not checked out will be returned to its home library. Your online account will indicate the status of your holds.
Will I still be able to request material online?
Your account will operate as normal and holds may be placed. We advise you to select another local library that is convenient for you as your temporary pick up library until we re-open.
