Brainerd Memorial Library does much for the town of Haddam. In addition to having
a regularly updated book collection in all genres, books or CD, books on audiotape and
DVD's are available. Several computers are available for adult and teen use as well
as some in the Children's Unit. The many programs for children are presented and
a special summer program is held, with activities and prizes. Movies are shown for
adults and other adult programs, both entertaining and informational are scheduled.
The Library staff participates in various town events and has a yearly Taste of Haddam.
The Friends of the LIbrary have a book room downstairs where books are for sale at
a moderate cost. Several volunteers keep this collection updated and books are donated to
area Assisted Living facilities, Kenya, hospitals, convalescent homes and other sources.
The Library Board annually has a dinner for volunteers. All in all it is a definite asset
to our community.

It's a Library but also a community center. It serves the local residents, but also attracts people from all around. Its book collection is nothing like a University Library, but through it you can access books from other libraries throughout the State. It is over 100 years old, and traces its origins to one of New England's many late 18th century reading clubs. Unlike the library at the regional school, there is only one reason to come here: enjoyment!

The library is beautiful on the inside and outside. I get help using the computers at the library and this is empowering for me. I love the movie selection, books, and things to do at the library. The staff are helpful. I love to visit the library at least once per week for some much needed arts, learning, and culture. Won't you join me? Eduardo
