You may request books and other materials from other public libraries within Connecticut if you cannot find what you are looking for at the Somers Public Library. After checking SPL first, try using the Bibliomation Catalog and selecting "Bibliomation" under the Library search field. This will allow you to search all libraries within the Bibliomation network. If you still cannot find it, ask us and we will try to locate it out of network for you.
If you are unable to travel to the library due to medical reasons (permanent or temporary), please contact us to make arrangements for someone to delivery library materials to you at home. Call the library and ask for Allison.
Check out all the great museum passes we have available to borrow! Made possible by the Friends of the Somers Public Library.
