Have a Train Table?


Perhaps your child or grandchild has moved off the Island of Sodor (for Thomas the Tank Engine fans) or has been to Chuggington too many times.


Please consider donating your gently used and loved train set and/or table to the Library. Many of our youngest patrons would enjoy playing with these toys while visiting our children's Room.


For more information, please contact Roberta Donahue at (860) 536-7721 or email here!

The Mystic Express has arrived!

Barry Boodman has been kind enough to once again donate a beautiful, working model train to the Children's Room for the holiday season. Children and families are invited to visit the Library during regular hours to make the train puff and toot its way around its bustling winter village.

The Library will be raffling the entire train set as a fundraiser. Tickets are $5.00 each and will be available at the Circulation Desk. The drawing will be on Monday, December 21, 2015 at noon.

For more information, please contact the Children's Room at 860-536-7721.

Registration may be done by phone or in person; the library will contact you by email. We will attempt to accommodate everyone but in the case of over-enrollment classes will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis.
