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.
