The Old South Britain Library

Location ID: #006-10087142
Until 1969, the only source of reading material for the Southbury public was the private, non-profit South Britain Library Association. In its early days, the Association’s books were housed in private homes. In 1904, the Association built a small one-room structure at the corner of South Britain and Library Roads, where it still stands today charming visitors, circulating books, and providing research assistance to genealogists, historical researchers and other users. ? The library served the community in this location for 65 years until it was outgrown and a new facility was needed. In 1983, the Southbury Historic Building Commission was appointed to preserve and maintain this historic building. It is now the Library of Local History and Genealogy. Southbury Historical Society volunteers preserve and care for the books and resources of the South Britain Library. Click here for additional info.
