SWPL Participating in Scavenger Hunt
During the month of February, the five libraries that now exist in the geographical area that was once "East Windsor" (Broad Brook Library, the Library Association of Warehouse Point, Hall Memorial Library in Ellington, Wood Memorial Library and Museum, and South Windsor Public Library) invite you to participate in a Scavenger Hunt. Pick up a family hunt booklet in any of the libraries.  Search for the answers to five questions about that library and have the librarian stamp your book. Visit each of the other libraries and find their five answers.  When you've finished the questions, have the librarian photocopy your entry information and you'll be eligible to win a prize drawing at the Book Club Book Store in South Windsor at 11 a.m., March 3.  Good Luck!

For your convenience, the library now has a charging station for your mobile devices. There are five bays that can be individually locked and unlocked by a code known only by you. You just need to have your power cable with you.  It can also be used as a safe place to keep your laptop if you need to leave the library for a short time.   Ask at the Information Desk for instructions.
Coming to See an Exhibit at the Library? Don't be disappointed!
The Library is glad to provide many exhibit spaces used to display the talents of members of our community.  Most exhibits are here for a full calendar month. 
During the school year in particular, our meeting rooms are also used for gatherings of local organizations (as well as Library programs).  These "one-time events" are often scheduled with very little notice and are not part of the Library's monthly calendar.
If you are coming to see an exhibit in a Library meeting room, please call us at 860-644-1541 to be sure the room will not be in use when you arrive.
