Stonington Free Library
In an effort to inform and hear from our neighbors, patrons and the community at large we invite you to learn about our plans to increase accessibility at the Library.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts. Will you join us?

Providing access to every member of our community is a major priority for SFL. For too long we have been unable to serve library visitors who need full access to the library. The staff and board of the library initiated a thorough analysis of how to best meet ADA and accessibility needs, including replacement lift /elevator options, compliant bathrooms, doorways, and place of refuge for emergency exits. Following a rigorous selection process, we engaged the services of a qualified architect, knowledgeable about ADA requirements and historic adaptive design. The board unanimously agreed on what we collectively believe is the most feasible and fiscally responsible option at a cost of $420,000. This approach solves both the accessibility concerns and dramatically improves the use of space on both the main and lower levels of the library.
Light refreshments will be provided.
