I have been using the library for the last 16 years. My children grew up on the books and VHSs/DVDs from the library. They are well stocked with new books and magazines. The atmosphere inside is great. It is also a great place for holding small meetings (5-10 people).

Needed to print Web enabled documents. Sent it to the Library printer - not knowing where the printer was and retrieving of the printer. Just asked where the printer was. Went above and beyond by stepping out from behind the counter, showing the printer and help me navigate how to retrieve of the print queue.

The library is reasonably well stocked, the staff is SUPER, A-1, 100% involved in their work and in helping you with your searches, checkout, etc. You can find a comfortable spot - but nothing really, really comfortable unfortunately. So why the 3 Stars?! It's like the state and the towns tier the libraries and Glastonbury was given the resources to... More

Great children's programs developed for specific age groups. I'm most familiar with the pre-school groups. Most of them fill up pretty quickly so register in advance. The Librarians are very capable and make everyone feel welcome.

A very modern library, with computer stations and plenty of quiet reading nooks. Good lighting in the shelves. The collection is first rate, including recorded books. The reference staff is helpful and knowledgeable.
