We're Here!

Happy Halloween and welcome back! The Library is open with power, internet, and charging stations.
We in the Children's Department have board games, a craft, and the Halloween Challenge! If you read for 15 minutes and color us a coloring page, you can receive a trick-or-treat. We may also have WII set up for later.

Monday and Tuesday storytimes ... and the weather!

The weather for Monday/Tuesday (October 29-30) looks as though it may be somewhat windy and rainy. Or not! The weather forecasters have been wrong before :) Although we are all tough New Englanders!, please be safe in Stratford. Please check conditions before coming out to Library programs on Monday and Tuesday.

Here's a fun article on the 1991 Perfect Storm that also happened around Halloween!
