History of the Library

We are actively gathering information for the history New Haven's Library. If you have historical facts to contribute, please contact the library.

Our "new" Library was built in 2009: Thanks to everyone who helped make our new library a reality. We appreciated everyone's dedication, time and effort as we planned and then moved into our new space in the spring-summer 2009! For photos of the transition from old to new, please go to our Photo Album page and scroll to the slideshows of construction and move.
