In the heart of South Glastonbury village, the South Glastonbury Public Library is a local historic treasure.

The South Glastonbury Public Library is a study in contrasts. Stepping inside this beautiful historic structure evokes the charm of the library of yesteryear. Today, the library remains a vibrant cultural institution, offering an excellent collection of current literature and hosting a variety of cultural and community events. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the library was originally built in 1828 as a Methodist church and in 1926, local citizens converted the building to a volunteer run library. Today, it is one of the oldest all volunteer libraries in the country and is housed in the oldest church building still standing in Glastonbury.

South Glastonbury Public Library is 90 Years Old!

 Please join us on Sunday, November 6th from 4:00 to 6:00 pm to celebrate the library's 90th anniversary! Enjoy music from the time of the library's founding in the 1920's, performed by local musician Jeff Weiselberg. Festivities will also include a raffle and refreshments, including a special anniversary cake. Hope to see you there!
