The Stratford Library continues to offer online programs for area adults, teens and children. In April alone, librarians answered more than 1,500 inquiries, providing help with online services, answering typical reference questions, and assisting people with how to use technology to connect to family from a distance. More than 1,200 people of all ages participated in online books discussion, preschool storytimes, craft and trivia nights, and other virtual programs, finding ways to learn, create and share while staying home.
As Connecticut carefully opens its doors again, the Stratford Library is implementing its own phased plan to safely reopen. Online programs and services will continue, and the Library also now offers contact-free service in order for patrons to borrow books and other items (by appointment only). Patrons can click here or call 203-385-4164 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday or email the Library at here for more information.
Stratford Library Director Sheri Szymanski added, “We are thrilled to offer this service and appreciate our patrons’ patience as we continue to plan for the coming months, making the safety of our staff and patrons our top priority.”
