In the heart of South Glastonbury village, the South Glastonbury Public Library is a local historic treasure.
The South Glastonbury Public Library is a study in contrasts. Stepping inside this beautiful historic structure evokes the charm of the library of yesteryear. Today, the library remains a vibrant cultural institution, offering an excellent collection of current literature and hosting a variety of cultural and community events.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the library was originally built in 1828 as a Methodist church and in 1926, local citizens converted the building to a volunteer run library. Today, it is one of the oldest all volunteer libraries in the country and is housed in the oldest church building still standing in Glastonbury.
The Library is open!
The books are back on the shelves and the library reopened to the public on December 1st! Thanks to the incredible generosity of our many donors, the capital campaign was a great success and the work on the building has been completed!
Thank you to everyone for your support and patience over this past year as we completed our construction project!
