The Greenwich Library system is appropriately described as the cultural and intellectual crossroads of the community. It provides superior library services and is Greenwich’s pre-eminent resource for information and knowledge.
There are four locations—the town-supported main library with its satellite community magnets of Byram Shubert and Cos Cob branches and the independent Perrot Memorial Library which primarily serves Old Greenwich.
In offering free and convenient access to information, the libraries promote a love of reading and research and the joy of lifelong learning and engagement with the arts, sciences and humanities.
At each venue, the staff is committed to guiding patrons--individuals, businesses, schools and municipal government- to timely and accurate information to further the educational, social, cultural and economic advancement of the community.
