We are proud to offer two new digital services to our patrons: Kanopy and Creativebug.

Creativebug is an online platform that offers instructional videos about arts and crafts projects including knitting, crochet, sewing, quilting, jewelry making, and more! Head to our Creativebug portal to sign up and get started!


OWL Secures Grant to Make Important Energy Upgrades

We are thrilled to share that OWL secured grant funding from Eversource to insulate the Colonial House portion of the library. By insulating this section of the library, we anticipate being able to reduce our fuel usage by about 30%.  

At a time of skyrocketing fuel costs, being able to reduce our fuel usage will greatly assist us in mitigating this rising financial burden, freeing up more funds to contribute to the programs and offerings we want to share with you and our greater community. This project not only presents financial savings, but it will also support OWL’s efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.


Mask Policy

Regardless of vaccination status, wearing a mask at the library is optional.


Curbside Service continues by request only

As we are pleased to move toward greater accessibility to our physical library for our community, Curbside Service continues but by special request only. If you have any questions about Curbside Service, please email us at [email protected] or call us at 860-567-8030.
