The mission of the Guilford Free Library is to provide the greatest possible diversity of books, media, information and programs to meet the recreational, cultural and educational aspirations of all members of the Guilford community.
This mission is aimed at enhancing love of learning and enjoyment of the written word. The library serves through a welcoming and warm environment, friendly and highly professional services, and continuing outreach to those who are unable to visit the library facility. The mission is supported by community groups and other libraries, and by new information technologies to ensure access to other collections and to information resources in Connecticut, the nation and the world.
Librarians and library assistants can answer queries in person, by telephone, or by e-mail. Staff members assist with book reserves, interlibrary loans, suggestions for leisure reading, and library instruction and orientation. Email Address: email@example.com
The library offers the latest in no-fee information technology. Special databases include iCONN, a full-text index of periodicals and the Historical New York Times (full-text articles from 1851-2001) and Access Science (online version of the McGraw Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology). InfoAnyTime is a real-time, free online reference service with live librarians, statewide. InfoAnyTime reference librarians can assist you late at night and at 5 am, when the library is closed. The Online Public Access Catalogs (PACs) display the holdings of the Guilford Free Library and the 21 other libraries in the LION (LibrariesOnLine) consortium.
