The Library is committed to expanding beyond its walls. To this end, several new programs have been launched to bring the Library to the community. Library volunteers now bring our collections and services to the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center. The Stonington Village Improvement Association, Stonington High School and the Library are collaborating on the construction, installation and maintenance of two Little Free Libraries. The Library is also involved with a new book group for Masonicare at Mystic residents.
Our 9th annual Mystery Dinner was a huge success! On April 22 approximately 145 ticket-holders arrived at 6 pm to find the Library decorated around the theme of Henry David Thoreau’s Walden. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres were served and guests departed at 7 to their appointed homes for dinner. Financially, the event was a success with over $13,000 in ticket sales and over $5,000 towards new laptops and an expanded new book area for the Library.
