Gunn Memorial Library And Museum

5 Wykeham Road
Washington, CT 06793



The Gunn Memorial Library, Inc. is a non-profit corporation providing free public library services to Washington, Connecticut and the surrounding communities. It is dedicated to the promotion of literacy, education, and preservation of the Town's history and culture, via the Gunn Historical Museum.
The GML&M is run by a paid staff, with help from loyal volunteers. Its operations, fundraising and budget are overseen by a volunteer board of trustees. Operating income comes from individual donations, fundraising events, endowment interest income, and a town contribution. As with any non-profit organization, it seems we never have enough money to do everything we'd like: buy more books and tapes; buy more computers, software and CDs; pay the overworked staff better; clean the carpets, replace the roof or buy more chairs for our ever-increasing patrons.
We have a lovely building, originally built in 1908 and expanded in 1994.
Upper Level: Wykeham Rooms, Connecticut Room, Stairwell Gallery
Main Level: Adult Library And Staff Offices
Lower Level: Junior Library.
