Sing-A-Long with Santa

Join us at the Bill Memorial Library on Monday, December 7, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. for an evening with Santa Claus. Santa will visit with all the children before leaving for the North Pole. Enjoy some old-fashioned Christmas caroling and warm up with hot cocoa and cookies. Parents, be sure to bring your cameras! Santa will give each and every child the opportunity to be photographed with him in front of thelibrary’s cozy fireplace. This annual event is a fun time for the whole family. This is a free program and no registration is required. Call the library at 860-445-0392 for more information and check out our flyer here.

InterLibrary Loan Update

The State Library has extended the deadline by which Connecticut libraries will have a unified interlibrary loan database. However, we are able to provide interlibrary loan services.
If you need a book or audiobook, please call the library at (860) 445-0392 or email us here. We have limited access to other libraries across the state and will work to acquire a copy for you.
Thank you for your patience! -The BML Staff

Technology Help Sessions

A new service is available at the library! Are you enraged by your E-reader? Troubled by your tablet? Perplexed by your PC? You can now set up a free 30-minute Technology Help Session with a member of the Bill Memorial staff. Email us here or call the library for more information.
