The main library's check out service will resume on Monday, November 30


On November 24, we were notified that a Norwalk Public Library
staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

Out of an abundance of caution, and to allow proper time for contact tracing, check out service at the Main Library will be closed for the remainder of the week. Sidewalk service remains in place for people who have already been notified that that their items are ready to pick up. 
The SoNo branch library will remain fully operational.

Have you tried The Blue Teapot Café at the Library? 
Baked Goods with a Sidewalk Service! 

The Blue Teapot's delicious baked goods can be ordered
 & picked up with your library items.
