SYNC is a free audiobook program for teens ages 13+. For 16 weeks, starting April 27 and ending August 17, teens can download two free audiobooks every week. Each week one contemporary book is paired with one classic book and they are available to download during that week only, but once you have downloaded the MP3 files they are yours to keep and listen to at your leisure. Download and enjoy your free audiobooks today! www.audiobooksync.com
We are now open on the second floor while the first floor renovation is under way, and back to providing complete children and teen services. This means all of our teen books have been unpacked and are back on the shelves waiting for you! Until renovations are complete, adult services are very limited, so if you need adult books you can use your WPL card to check out materials at any other CT public library. You can also order books to be sent here from other libraries, but they do take some time to arrive. Don't forget about all the free online databases available through our main website - they're great for homework help and research!
The entire library is CLOSED as we empty out the first floor and move upstairs and prepare to reopen our newly renovated Youth Services Department. We will reopen Monday, February 27 with full children and teen services and very limited adult services. Thank you for your patience during our renovation. We can't wait to show you our new space!
Experience the beautiful art of henna! Professional henna artist Jamilah Zebarth will be here on Tuesday, November 8 from 3:30-5:30 PM to create incredible henna art on teens. Jamilah uses plant-based henna in her designs. The program will be held in our new temporary children/teen space in the front of the Adult Department. Register in person or at 860-465-3079.
Our library renovation has begun! Work on the second floor will be completed first. While under construction, the Children's Department is located downstairs in the front of the Adult Department. We have set up an area for teens, with teen novels, graphic novels, nonfiction, audio books, and a seating area. You may use the three Internet computers marked for children/teens or use the adult computers as well. Children's Department staff are in this new space to help you with all of your library needs and answer any questions you might have about the renovation project.
