Wandering Librarian: New Canaan Library

library1Fall is here, this means it’s back to school and story time. As a new mom, New Canaan Library was one of my first story times as a participant and not the librarian. The librarian thoughtfully projects the songs and rhymes for newbies like myself to sing karaoke style.

It isn’t just the high quality programs like their outdoor-knit-a-thon or talk by Pulitzer Prize winning author Dr. Aimee Pozorski that make this a great library. Or their tech features like their Library Anywhere App, wireless onsite printing and MakerLab. Or even their impressive gallery space/study space.

This small and quaint library screams $$$. From their simple but navigate-able website to the fish tank in their children’s room to their MakerLab. But money alone isn’t enough to create a great user experience. New Canaan takes pride in their library and it shows.
