The Library is a private library association that serves as the public library for the town of Old Lyme. Our building is an historic landmark. It is a gathering place for all our patrons. We provide traditional reading materials and educational resources, as well as the latest in popular books and movies. We stay current with technology trends both in access and formats such as downloadable audio books and ebooks.
Our goals are to meet the changing needs of our community, support education at every age, and be a community hub where discussions, lectures, movies, music, meetings, story times and many other activities bring us together to share ideas, be enlightened and entertained.
