Mark Twain Branch Library

927 Asylum Ave.
Hartford, CT 06105



The Mark Twain Branch opened March 1, 2017, in the renovated West Middle Community School, in Asylum Hill.  The Library offers services to the community three days a week and to adults, including English as a Second  Language, and Chief Teale's Tools of Learning for ages 18 and older.

The Mark Twain Memorial Commission opened the home of Mark Twain in 1929, and in May 1930, the Hartford Public Library opened a branch library on the first floor of the famous house. 

Subsequent restoration of the house made it necessary to move the Branch to 256 Farmington Avenue.  The branch was relocated to Hartford Public High School on Forest Street in 2011.
