With the recent grant of $1,000 from Jewett City Savings Bank, close to $3,000 from the Friends of Voluntown Library, funds from Voluntown Library, and $500 from the Pachaug Grange, Voluntown Library will soon offer web access to what is in the physical library in the very near future. The future is almost now!

Last year, the library webpage moved its home to the town websiteVoluntown Library  and has built its web presence in Facebook .

Now the library is pleased to present a web accessible catalog for our patrons. Watch this space because in the very near future as you will be able to see what you have checked out, and find books on the shelves at Voluntown Library. Right now you can see what the library owns. Soon, you will be able to reserve an item from the comfort of home.
