Huntington Branch Library

The Huntington Branch Library is a great place to be whether you want to pop in and out and pick up a movie, find a great tome to read or listen to, use our public computers or WiFi, or just want to enjoy our relaxed and informal ambience.  We're one of the best kept secrets in town (even though we're been here for over twenty years). The Huntington Branch Library is located with the Shelton Community Center.

Relax and Stay Cool

The Huntington Branch Library offers a respite from the summer heat. Drop in and work on an ongoing jigsaw puzzle in our Reading Room (for adults and children 12 or older), test your skills with the NYT crossword puzzle, use our computers or Wi-Fi, or just relax and flip through a magazine or newspaper.

New Charging Station

Visitors to the Huntington Branch Library may now take advantage of a new service. Thanks to the sponsorship of the Dental Associates of Connecticut, we now have available to the public a courtesy charging station. Devices may be charged while owners wait in the Browsing Area (please note that the security of your device is your responsibility).
