The Abbott Memorial Library is the public library for the town of Pomfret and is open to non-residents as well. All of our services are free.
We have a superb collection of children’s books, an up-to-date assortment of young adult literature, and a constantly evolving selection of books for adults, including audiobooks. For movie lovers, we have an in-house collection of DVDs, from classics to new releases, as well as a rotating supply.
Crafts, holiday parties, and programs that promote literacy make the library a fun place for toddlers to teens. Programs for adults include twice annual “Moth storytelling” sessions and informative presentations on subjects such as health, history and the arts, as well as celebrations of local people’s accomplishments. The Library is also a welcoming space for meetings.
Fast and free WIFI, as well as interlibrary loans, connect us to the outside world and any book in the state. All of this is found in our lovely building built in 1905 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The library is run by our helpful staff that still provide small town service.
