National Friends of the Libraries Week October 21-27 2018

The Friends of the New Fairfield Library are a wonderful small group of volunteers that raise money to support the library. Established in 1960 to benefit the library, the Friends have contributed over $700,000 towards programs, computers, museum passes, digitizing the Citizen News/Town Tribune, furniture and other services needed by the library.  Funds are raised though their Books Sales, Cookie Walk, Plant Sale and donations. Please consider volunteering or contributing to this organization which supports the library in many ways.

New Museum Pass

   The Friends of the Library have acquired a new “museum” pass for our library patrons to take advantage of when looking for something to do.  Earth Place in Westport will admit four people of any age for free.  Check out their website at earthplace.org and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to see what they have to offer.

BRUSH REMOVAL

posted May 23, 2018, 10:28 AM by NF Library

The Drop Off Center (33 Bigelow Road) will be open during the following hours:  Tuesdays 8-3:45; Thursdays 4-7PM; Saturdays 8-3:45.  Residents may dispose of brush (anything under 8 inches in diameter) at the Drop Off Center for free during those hours.  Contractors will be charged $10 for pick-up truck of brush and $20 for a box truck.  Wood chips are free.  Do not dump material on any other Town properties.

 

The Town will pick up brush from curbsides, but has not yet determined a date for that pickup.  Do not put brush in the road.  You will be asked to remove any material that is in the roadway. 

 

The size limitation is because of the size of the chipper we have.  We are working on getting a bigger one and may be able to accept bigger size brush in the future.

 

Keep all receipts for possible reimbursement through the FEMA process.
