We may not be able to go into our library, but that is not stopping this flat of pansies from going in.   In this time of trial, think of the good stuff--daffodils in bloom, way less traffic, and Ebooks!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again, 
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.


It saddens us to have to announce that in compliance with medical recommendations and Mayor Rilling's directives, Norwalk Public Library will remain closed to the public until further notice.   We feel it vital to put the health  and welfare of our patrons  first.  

Library staff members are working remotely answering questions, issuing library cards, and assisting patrons to utilize online resources.  We are also adding to our digital collections often, please check back daily for new additions.  Just yesterday, our Children's Room began hosting an online story time for children on Instagram Live that can be accessed for 24 hours on our Instagram story.  Have your children look for familiar faces through that remote service.

Ebooks, audiobooks, movies, magazines, 
music and so much more!
