As a little girl growing up in New Canaan, I can remember the adults in my life discussing the need for upgrades and expansions to the library we frequented so often. For the 30+ years my family and I have lived in New Canaan our town has desperately needed a new library. Living elsewhere and working in education underscored just how integral to a community’s well-being a library is —how expansive an institution it can be —and fostered a deeper respect for our librarians who currently do so much with, frankly, so little. When I moved back to town full time and watched the state of the art rebuilds of surrounding towns’ libraries, I excitedly anticipated the day our own new library would open its doors.
