Library Services, updated 4/5

To minimize the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the library will remain closed to the public until re-opening tentatively scheduled for Thursday, April 23.

All library-sponsored and outside programs are cancelled, rescheduled, or postponed, through the end of April. This includes: story-times, lectures, book discussions, crafts, and any small gathering.

Our doors may be closed, but we are still offering a wide variety of digital services, resources, and media, accessible 24/7 online. With more to come!

NEW!  Join us on Facebook for our community stay-at-home activity, Together Apart Newtown!  Each day we will post a free online activity for adults.  We hope you will participate, then comment on the activity.  Did you like it? Did it inspire you? Some of the activities are time sensitive (it is up to the institution or artist), some will be up for awhile.

You can find all of that, and more, right here on our website. Don’t forget to bookmark our website, and check back regularly for updates!

Do you have questions? Want to reach a library staff person? For a response, please email us at

We miss you and hope you and your loved ones are doing well. We can’t wait to see you again.

Access Library Resources 24/7

Many of these online resources requires a valid C.H. Booth library card.  If your card was close to expiring, it has been automatically renewed until June 1.  If your card already expired, you will need to contact us to update it. If you are a Newtown resident and you don’t have a card, apply for your temporary library card online today:

Still have physical materials checked out? Not to worry.  No fines are being charged or accrued during this closure. All items in good status have been automatically renewed until May 1.  If you had an item that was already overdue several weeks, we were not able to do this remotely and in a batch.  Please contact us so we can renew those items individually and allow you to use your card for our digital resources.
