It's Cold Outside! Stay Warm Inside the Library

Nestle up with a good book, today's newspaper, or surf the web in the comforts of Orange's Case Memorial Library.

The fireplace isn't on but the Case Memorial Library still offers a warm, cozy place for Orange residents.

The town hasn't officially opened any warming centers, but the library is always open to residents and there's something for everyone - from books, magazines and newspapers on to free Internet, video rentals and an art exhibit.

The library, located at 176 Tyler City Road, has the following hours:

  • Monday and Thursday, 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • Saturday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

In July, when the library was serving as a cooling center during a heat wave, Director Meryl Farber said, "We always have programs in place, and we have computers and great wireless ... People can read a book. We have lots of things they can check out. We always have ongoing services."

Residents in need of shelter or a warm place are also encouraged to call the state's safety network by dialing 2-1-1. That network was put in place last night by order of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
