The Trumbull Library System serves as a Community Center actively enriching the intergenerational learning and leisure A opportunities in Trumbull.
Discussions began in the late 1960ís that the Town of Trumbull needed a central library to accommodate the growing community. The current building on Quality Street opened in 1975 and replaced two smaller libraries, the Hawley Library and the Long Hill Library. A third library, the Fairchild-Nichols Memorial Library on Huntington Turnpike became a branch.
The Trumbull Library System serves the residents of Trumbull by providing a safe and inviting place for people of all ages to meet and interact. Quality programs encourage and inspire enjoyment and provide a broad range of cultural and educational opportunities. The Libraryís professional staff anticipates and responds to the public demand for both popular and informational materials and strives to make the Trumbull Library a welcoming place for all who visit in person or through our web page. The guiding values of the Trumbull Library System are:
ō Integrity - courtesy and respect for each library patron and fellow staff personnel
ō Accountability – responsible and honest service
ō Understanding – always striving to be communicative and sympathetic
