Our Services

The Palace Project
Friday, May 3, at 7PM. The history of Litchfield County highlights the challenges that Northern communities faced during the Civil War. Author Peter C. Vermilyea uses first-hand accounts; many never published before, to investigate these events and show how the process of preparing for war created a lasting bond between a community and its soldiers. This event is free. Books will be available for purchase.
Children's Story Hour: Every Friday morning year-round at 10:30am with Cindy! . Stories, songs, crafts and a snack!
