As Temperatures Drop, Stay Warm at the Southbury Library

Chilly out there? Warm up with a good book or surf the web at the Southbury Public Library.

As temperatures dip dangerously low, the Southbury Public Library serves as a great place to escape the cold and warm up with a number of activities.

The town hasn't officially opened any warming centers, but the library is always open to residents to take in a good book, check out the video section or hop on a computer and utilize the wireless internet.

The library, located at 100 Poverty Road, has the following hours:

  • Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday and Thursday, 9:30 a.m. - 9 p.m.
  • Saturday, 9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.
  • Sunday, 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.

In June, the library served as a cooling center providing shelter, water and bathrooms to residents in need of a reprieve from the heat wave. 

Residents in need of shelter or a warm place are also encouraged to call the state's safety network by dialing 2-1-1. That network was put in place last night by order of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
