Library News

8/15/2022 - September is National Library Card Sign-up Month!

September is National Library Card Sign-up Month. The Southbury Public Library is reaching out to Southbury residents who do not have a library card or whose card is expired. Stop by the library during regular hours and register for a card or have your expired card updated and receive a library card and a complimentary heart-shaped keychain.

With your card, you get access to the Southbury Public Library’s thousands of books and movies, as well as the power to check out books from any public library in the state. With your library card, you can also borrow e-books and digital audiobooks right to your phone, browse magazine articles online, access the full Consumer Reports online, and more!

If you get a new card or renew your expired card in September, you can get a special Southbury Library heart-shaped keychain. To get a library card, please bring proof of Southbury residency (such as a driver’s license with your current address or a piece of mail). For children, a parent or guardian’s proof of residency can be used; children must be age five or older to get a library card.

The library is open the following hours: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:30AM–5:30PM; Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30AM–9:00PM. Beginning the weekend after Labor Day on September 10, the library will also be open on Saturdays from 9:30AM–4:00PM and on Sundays from 12:00PM–5:00PM.
