Big News!!!

Deep River Library is now sharing collections with over 90 other Connecticut libraries enabling our users greater access to materials.

Patrons MUST present THEIR OWN library card for each transaction. If you have lost your card, we are happy to provide one free complimentary card for Deep River residents.

We will be scheduling training in November and December so we can all make the best use of this resource.

Collection Cabinets

The Town Historian, Richard Kalapos, will display a model wigwam he crafted almost completely using original methods. He is also displaying artifacts from our earliest settlers. Be sure to stop by and appreciate this timely display of our history.
