Summer updates

Over 1000 children read over 19,000 books and counting! We didn't quite dye Mrs. S's hair, but there's always next year and another challenge.

Please pick up any unclaimed Library Insight prizes no later than this Friday, 8/22.
The prize drawings are closed; winners will be announced no later than this Wednesday.

We're still accepting surveys in exchange for a poster or sticker.

Don't forget to send in your Bridgeport Bluefish ticket forms due by 9/7. Miss Beth and Miss A. will be at the game, so please join us! If you were in the summer reading program and didn't get the Bridgeport Bluefish form, please ask at the Children's Desk.

Schedule changes

Hi, everyone!

The Tech Playground will be March 9 at 2 p.m. NOT March 2nd. Sorry for that confusion.
The Fairy Party will be March 13 at 4 p.m. It was listed as March 6 on the online calendar, but correctly as March 13 everywhere else.

Whatever the date, let's hope the winter weather is done for good! Remember, if Stratford schools are closed, Library programs are cancelled.

Snow cancellation policies

Hi, everyone!

Since this has come up sooo much recently!, if the Stratford schools are cancelled for the day, or if there is early dismissal, teen and children's programs at the Stratford Library are also cancelled for the day. If the schools have a delay, we are generally open, and our programs will take place. However, you can always check our Facebook page for details on our hours of operation and our programs.

We hope the snow ends ... at least for a few days!
