The Book Seller Is Moving

The Library's used book shop, The Book Seller, is moving to a new larger space. It will be closed from Saturday, October 10th through Friday, October 16th. Look for the entrance under the green awning at the back of the Main Library beginning Saturday, October 17th.

A New Face at the Circulation Desk

The Wallingford Public Library has just become more technologically advanced – and more child-friendly – with the installation of a self-checkout machine. The system, positioned with the intention of attracting lots of our smaller patrons, allows adults and children to check out books and other materials without having to wait in line at the checkout counter.

The computer will scan your library card and the bar codes of books and media, with onscreen directions in simple terms (in the language of your choice), and an accompanying instructional video.

Next time you’re in the library, ask a staff member to give you a quick introduction to the self-checkout system.

Holiday Closing

The Library will be closed on Monday, October 12th in observance of Columbus Day. Regular hours resume Tuesday, October 13th.
