The Library is proud to announce that it has been awarded a $145,000 grant by the Connecticut State Library Board. The Library will use the grant to help fund Phase 2 of its planned Renovation and ADA Accessibility Building Project. This second phase of the project addresses the existing spaces of the Library and focuses on creating more flexible, functional, user-friendly spaces throughout the Library, including movable furniture, mobile shelving, new carpeting and paint, improved electrical infrastructure and critically needed work space for the public.
The annual Stonington Village Stroll is a beloved event and it all begins at the Library!

On November 27th, join our sponsors and the Stonington Small Business Collaborative in this amazing opportunity to support your Library!

Stonington Free Library offers those who wish to support the Library the option to become a sustainer. If you would rather donate on a monthly basis, securely and worry free, we’d be happy to set you up. Each year sustainers receive a report on their contributions along with our wholehearted appreciation for their steadfast support.
You’re special people and we are so grateful that you are with us for the long haul!
Beth Walker has been part of the Stonington community for many years. She loves it here and she loves the Library. So, it is no surprise that when she approached the front door on a Friday afternoon in July and found it locked, she was incensed.
