As reluctant as we are to suspend services to our patrons, our greater responsibility to the community is to help slow the spread of this virus, COVID-19. Therefore, the Ivoryton Library will close Friday, March 13, at 6 pm and remain closed until it is safe to reopen, following the recommendations of the Essex Department of Health, the State of Connecticut and the CDC. All fines will be waived during our closure. Please follow us on Facebook (@ivorytonlibrary) for updates, links and information on accessing our digital offerings.
Located on the lower level of the library, the Children’s Room is an inviting space for child enrichment. We carry a large selection of children’s books, games and DVDs for loan and provide ongoing and seasonal events.
Through our consortium membership and the efforts of our staff and board of trustees, we are able to offer a wide array of educational, historical, cultural and civic resources to the community.
The library is happy to sponsor several book clubs. Take a look at our Book Club page to view the options and find the book of the month for each club.
