The New London Public Library, mostly privately funded, is a vital source of not only books and movies but internet access for those without it who need it most and a safe quiet place for people to look for jobs, kids to do homework, and more. The librarians are incredibly devoted and helpful and the library is such an important and vital part of the community.

The Public Library of New London gets involved in many different campaigns to both increase literacy and offer services/resources to the public. It is also an important source of entertainment for NL residents. But, it is often overlooked by those seeking to donate to a charity. That may be due to the mistaken impression that it is owned and operated by the City of NL. It is not. It is a non-profit organization.
