Interlibrary Loan

If there is a book, magazine article or video which we do not own, you may request that we try to get the item from another library. We try to obtain materials at no charge. However, if there is a charge involved, we will inform you and get your approval prior to the request being sent. The requesting patron is responsible for all fees for materials obtained through interlibrary loan. If you wish to request that the library purchase a new item for the collection which we do not have, please fill out a Material Request Form.

Genealogy/Census Microfilm Rental Programs

The library does not own any census microfilm but does participate in the National Archives Census Microfilm Rental Program. This program allows patrons to select specific microfilm reels from the census catalogs and then order them for use in the library for up to six weeks. Catalogs, order forms and prices are available at the reference desk.
In addition, we have just become the first public library in Connecticut to become a Family History Center affiliate library! This designation means that our patrons will have greater and more convenient access to the wealth of genealogical resources available through the Family History Library. Please call 860-355-1191 x207 for more information.
