Beginning Wednesday, July 15th, a limited number of adults and teens will be permitted to enter the building to access the collections, copiers and scan/fax equipment, and seek help from our staff. Patrons are encouraged to use Park ‘n Pickup rather than browse the shelves. Meetings, onsite programs, and interactive play areas remain suspended.
Hours for entering the library: Weekdays: 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. & 2:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.; Saturdays: 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
If you are feeling ill, please do not come to the Library.
We’re excited to begin to welcome you back to the Library. Read more about our plans.
Beginning July 6th, a limited number of adults and teens may enter the building by appointment to use a computer. Face masks covering nose and mouth are required at all times. Patrons are expected to maintain six-feet distance from others.
One-hour appointments for computer use may be scheduled online or by phone at (203)265-6754.
Between each appointment, computer work stations will be cleaned and sanitized.
Please note: Because of social distancing requirements, library staff will not be available to assist patrons at computers. Patrons who anticipate needing assistance should schedule an appointment when they can bring a computer savvy friend or relative.
We are offering a limited delivery service to Wallingford residents who have a valid library card and are confined to their home due to COVID-19 and/or have a disability and do not have a household member to pick up and return library materials.
Applicants should contact Deborah Ward at (203) 284-6458 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request an enrollment application and a reading interest form. Once enrolled, materials will be delivered to the recipient’s home and left at a designated area by a volunteer or staff member. There will be no physical contact between the recipient and the volunteer. Volunteers are not permitted to enter the home to drop-off or pick-up materials. No library card? Wallingford residents may apply online for a card anytime or call us at (203)265-6754 during library hours.
Although the building remains closed to the public, Wallingford residents can request items through our Park ‘n Pickup service! Visit our Park ‘n Pickup web page for more info on how it works and to request items.
It can be easy to think of history as the past. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has made it clear that history happens every day. This is why we have launched an archival project called Letters to the Library, where we are gathering and sharing community members’ responses about this historic time. We need your help with this project! You could even win a gift card to the Wallingford business of your choice. Learn more…
