Librarian's Corner

Spring is here and daylight savings means plenty of time to plan an after-dinner visit to the Library! We’re here until 8:30 on Mondays and Wednesdays. Drop in to have a leisurely browse of our new books, catch up on the newspapers, play a board game or choose a DVD for a family movie night.

As we enter gardening season remember that our Harwinton Grows Seed Library is open and packed with both local and commercial seeds for flowers, vegetables, greens and herbs. Take what you need and don’t forget to let us know how your garden is doing – we love to see what you’ve grown with seeds from our Library!
Looking for plants that are a little further along? Don’t miss our Annual Plant, Book & Bake Sale, Saturday May 21 from 9:30 – 2. Grab a tasty breakfast, stock up on bargain books for your summer reading, take a chance on our Teacup Auction, and shop a unique selection of flowers, herbs, veggies, shrubs and succulents for your yard. All proceeds benefit your library. Please join us for this fun and festive day!

Story Time is back! Join Miss Molly on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for great books, songs, activities and crafts. Grown ups need craft time too – The Brush & Pallete will lead an Outdoor Painting Class on May 24th.

What Are We Reading This Month?

My Heart
by Corinna Luyken

Book Cover


My Heart is a lovely story which describes all the different ways your heart can be. Short and sweet, this book will help young people better understand that it is ok to feel different things. A heart can be closed or open, tiny or large, but no matter what, they ultimately get to decide for themselves. Harwinton Library Staff Member
