About Us

Wheeler Library is an association library which serves as the public library for North Stonington.  The building has a rich history. Constructed in 1900 of Westerly granite, the Wheeler School and Library served as the secondary school and public library for over forty years. Created and funded by the Wheeler family, the library remains a private institution open and free to the public. Borrowing privileges are extended to all residents of North Stonington as well as to library cardholders from other Connecticut towns.

The Library is managed by a Board of Trustees.  Current board members include:  Kate Parenteau, President;  Marietta Anderson, Bitsy Carlson, Jon Edwards, and Ellen Flannery-Schroeder.  Gary Annino and Barbara Deindorfer Young serve as Trustees Emeritus.
