Libraries across the state of Connecticut are facing many threats to their funding; unfortunately, the West Haven Public Library is no exception. Due to budget constraints, the Library has had to make the difficult decision to alter its operating hours. This decision was not made lightly, and is intended to maximize our availability to you, our patrons, and our ability to provide the excellent programming and services you have come to expect.
Effective July 1, 2017, the West Haven Public Library will be open during the following hours:
