Curbside Pickup: For those who are not ready to come into the library or for those who are looking for a fast pick up option, you can request Curbside Pickup. When you receive a notification that your hold request (book or other library item) is in, call the library and request curbside. A library staff member will bring your items right to your car!

Children’s Room Renovations:Construction is underway at Seymour Library as renovations are being made to update our Children’s Room into our new family space.

Popular collections from the Children’s Room can be found in the library’s new book room. Other collections around the library have been shifted to accommodate the change.

You will notice that sections of the library are currently unavailable to the public or that lights are off in certain areas. Library staff are more than happy to assist with retrieving a book. 

The library’s History Discovery Center is closed at this time, but research questions can be emailed to

Construction vehicles/equipment will be parked in the library’s parking lot for the duration of the project, but there is still parking available to visitors.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this remodel. We cannot wait to share the new family space with you! We will continue to post renovation updates on our Facebook page. You can find out more information about the Children’s Room Renovation here:
