The Library will be closing early on Thursday, December 10th at 5 p.m. 

Just because we're closed doesn't mean you have to miss out on checking out eBooks, eMagazines, eAudiobooks, movies, music, and TV shows. You just need your Darien Library card number and then head over to Digital Darien to find out how to get started. 

Challenge Accepted, Greenwich Library

Help us win!
Help us win!

Tuesday, December 1st through Thursday, December 31st

Greenwich Library has challenged us to a fundraising Book Bowl, and we have accepted. This month-long challenge starts on #GivingTuesday, and will continue until midnight on December 31st.

Each and every gift to the Annual Fund makes Darien Library the intellectual and cultural heart of Darien, and one of the best libraries in the nation. Every gift goes directly to the purchase of the books, movies, and technology and to the support of the countless programs - author visits, movies, storytimes, music and art lectures - offered throughout the year.

And this month, every gift will help us beat Greenwich! 

In the words of our Board President Tad Smith, “Darien is always up for a competition with Greenwich, whether it be on the sports field or a Book Bowl. Bring it on!”

Library Closing Early Friday, November 13th

Fore! The Library will be closing early Friday, November 13th as we set up for our Mini Golf Fundraiser. The second and mezzanine levels of the Library will close at 2 p.m., while the rest of the Library will close at 6 p.m. There will be no Friday Night Film this week. The Library will be open our normal hours on Saturday, November 14, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., though it will probably be a little nosier in here than normal! See you on the course!

All funds raised from Mini Golf go directly to the purchase of all of the books, movies, and technology as well as the support of countless programming opportunities throughout the year.
