Welcome to our new online catalog! Click here to access our entire collection.

We also lend sets of books for book groups and discussions.

We are starting a curbside pickup service for patrons during the pandemic.  Are you running out of things to read? The JPW Library can help!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Search our collection following the link above. 
  2. Email us the title and author of the item(s) at
  3. We are also happy to provide book recommendations and basic reference services. Just send your query to the above email address and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
  4. Due dates will be approximately one week after we reopen. However, items can also be returned on curbside pickup days.

If you don’t have email, you can call the library at 860-232-3893 but please be aware that we are not actually present in the library and are only checking phone messages once per day.

Curbside Services are from 2 to 3 p.m. on Mondays or by appointment. Contact or (860) 232-3893. Just drive up to the rotunda entrance and the materials will be brought to your car. We can place them in your trunk or through an open car window.

Stay safe and happy reading!
