As New Canaan residents for 25 years and local business owners we are proud to support a new, New Canaan Library. This exciting project will transform our library into a modern, LEED certified, 48,000-square-foot learning and community center right in the heart of town. The building design is a culmination of many years of careful planning and community input and will answer the growing demand for varied and innovative programming and learning opportunities that the old, failing building cannot support. In the modern digital world, libraries have changed or need to change to remain the center of community learning. Libraries are no longer simply a collection of books, but centers for learning supported by educational and cultural programming and the facilities to showcase the programming.
