Avon Free Library

The Avon Free Library is the public library for the town and village of Avon, and the surrounding area. We are an independent not-for-profit managed by a board of trustees and a director with a full-time and part-time staff of 8. Our service hours are 48 hours, 6 days a week. We are a member library of the 4-county OWWL System and participate in OWWL.org shared services and materials with the 42 member libraries. Currently we provide: children's, teen, and adult classes, events, and activities; computer access for all; genealogy research and foreign language software access; meeting, tutoring, and study spaces; access to thousands of books, audio books, DVDs, ebooks, and more through our collection and the shared services of the OWWL system. Our building is 90 years old and is on the National Historic Register. We are proud to be the stewards of this piece of Avon history. Consequently, this, along with the changing ways in which the public is using the library made it necessary for us to renovate some of the building to provide a more efficient use of space for public use. With the renovation, we increased access to more and newer technologies, provided safe and quiet spaces for study and collaborating, and increased our capacity in the meeting room so even more community members can join in classes and activities. We are now planning renovation projects of our front lawn and entrance to improve accessibility and to our back yard and parking lot to also address accessibility and safety issues. In the back yard, we will also be creating a user friendly space that will act as an extension of the library building with a pavilion, storage, and educational gardens, and will be available for community use. Please consider supporting us we continue to make improvements and grow to fit the community's needs. Feel free to contact Rebecca Budinger-Mulhearn at 585-226-8461 or avonlibrarydirector@owwl.org with questions or for more information about our planned improvements.
