Why Give to the Library?

Hear from patrons of all ages about our beautiful facilities, and the quality collections and services provided by the Library.


Annual Appeal

Greenwich Library is more than a place to find books; it is a place to connect, learn and grow, both within the walls of our three buildings and beyond to your home, office, or on the go.

The Library provides resources for job seekers, support for language learners, early literacy programs for young children and their families, assistance with new technology, and help to navigate the increasingly complex world of online information.

Peterson Business Award Dinner

On April 4, 2024, Raymond T. Dalio, Founder, CIO Mentor, and Member of the Bridgewater Board, Bridgewater Associates, LP, will be honored as the fourteenth recipient of Greenwich Library’s Peterson Business Award.
