Welcome to Douglas Library

Our goal is to provide a cultural center for all residents of the town of North Canaan and surrounding communities. The library is committed to providing equal access to information, idead and knowledge through books and other resources. The library believes in and supports intellectual freedom for all.


Due to the Covid9 virus, the library is closed until further notice.  We are happy to fill requests for items during the hours of 10-2PM on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays and leave your checkouts curbside.  We have also had a volunteer step up and offer to do home deliveries!  Call us at 860-824-7863 or email douglaslibrary@comcast.net.
Our catalog is accessible here at douglaslibrarycanaan.org.  Stay well!
