Happy New Year to our patrons!
We kick off January with a cozy and colorful display of quilts from the Goshen Star Quilters, January 8 – February 26. You can view the show in our online gallery, or visit the Library for a close-up look at the exquisite work that goes into these beautiful works of fabric art.

Winter Storytimes begin later this month, and we are excited to try a new model for our Storytime programing. Pick up a weekly Take Home kit with everything you need for Storytime including books, activities, songs and crafts. Then join Miss Amanda on Zoom each Tuesday morning for a live, interactive Storytime. Can’t make Tuesday mornings? View a recording of the Storytime on your own schedule. We hope to resume in person Storytimes in the spring.

Are you interested in exploring your ancestry? Get help from an expert: Harwinton Town Historian Susan Fenn McClen will visit the Library each month to assist patrons one-on-one. Whether you are just getting started or have specific questions from your research, Sue can help. Space is limited – register for your session.

Is mindfulness one of your New Year’s resolutions? New members are always welcome at our Wednesday afternoon Mindful Meditation group.

What Are We Reading This Month?

Staff Pic of the Month

The Six of Crows
by Leigh Bardugo

Book Cover


It is a heist, a fantasy, and a mystery. Bardugo keeps enough hidden that her reveals are satisfying to read. Bardugo’s writing is literary and poetic as well as action packed. She draws images with her words that make the city of Ketterdam feel real and just around the corner. "When the end of the novel came, I found myself wishing for more. This is easily one of the best books I have ever read." Harwinton Library Staff Member

Book Discussion - Monday, February 28th @ 6 pm

The Silent Patient
by Alex Michaelides

The Oregon Trail


Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word. Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia and unravel this mystery. We will meet in our activity room.
