The Library goes tobacco-free

Starting July 1, Hartford Public Library will become a tobacco-free environment, both inside and outside all HPL managed or maintained facilities.

As a responsible community leader in information and learning, we are committed to providing a safe, clean, and healthy experience for our visitors and staff. It is our goal to reduce health risks associated with the use of tobacco products and to encourage and promote healthy lifestyles throughout the community.

Our tobacco-free policy includes cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, chewing tobacco, smokeless tobacco, dip and snuff.
