 It’s Annual Appeal Time for your library – we are funded by you! Please help us continue to serve North Stonington and keep this gorgeous town landmark and community center in good condition.
We are currently refinishing the gorgeous entrance doors, and re-pointed much of the masonry this summer. We’ve added an Arts Corridor to showcase local artists. We continue to provide a wide range of programs, materials and services to the whole community.
