Avon Free Library

For over one hundred years, the Avon Free Library has played a crucial role in our community, evolving far beyond just providing books. The library is a place for discovery, creativity, inclusivity, and lifelong learning. It is a common ground where people can find the resources and support that they need to succeed, all at no cost. The library makes a true impact in our community: • In the past year, patrons visited the library over 21,000 times, borrowed over 97,000 items and participated in 315 programs • The Avon Free Library is now 100% fine-free, having eliminated the barrier of late fees in order to expand access to materials, services, and resources • Our recently finished front entrance renovation boasts a new ADA compliant ramp and book drop, improving access to the building • Mobile Hotspots are now available to be checked out from the library, increasing access to important online resources • The library hosted the first ever Sensory Break Space during the town’s annual Corn Festival, allowing individuals with sensory processing disorder a calming and inclusive space so that they could fully enjoy the event Plans for the future of the library focus on continuing to increase services, and improving the safety and accessibility of the building: Expanded programming for all ages • An elevator, providing multi floor access to the building • A new slate roof, as the current roof nears its 100th year • A paved parking lot to improve safety and accessibility • A Learning Lawn, a multipurpose space where patrons can gather, work, study, and play Support from individuals like you allows the library to expand our programming, grow our collections, and provide essential services that further enrich our community. Your investment of any amount will help keep the library a safe, accessible, and meaningful part of our community.
