Great News from our friends at the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation: $1200 Grant for our eBook collection!


Did you know that libraries may pay more than 3 times as much for an eBook as an individual consumer does? In our Harwinton Library, eBook circulation is climbing every year – it’s already up 18% over last year! But the high price of eBooks makes it hard for us to keep up with the demand.


Now, thanks to the generous support of the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation, we’ll have a little help buying new titles and purchasing extra copies to reduce the long waiting lists for some of our most popular books.


Watch for new eBooks in our OverDrive collection!
