The “new” New Canaan Library is on track to open to the public at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 14, officials say.
Executive Director Lisa Oldham said she’s feeling “unbelievably excited at this incredibly wonderful new community asset for New Canaanites.”
“We are so pleased to resume service in our new space,” Oldham told NewCanaanite.com. “We all do it because we are devoted to library service, to our community. And we are so excited to be opening our doors and welcoming the community into this wonderful new space.”
Planned for years following wide community input and unveiled publicly in early 2020, the new library has been taking shape since last summer, with a new main entrance along Maple Street between South Avenue and Main Street. The library’s whole team, staff and board members, will be out on the floor on “opening day” to help provide directional information and talk to patrons about the new building and “make sure people can find everything they need and learn everything they want to learn about the building,” she said.
