GML is the library that has never stopped serving our community. We modified our services in March 2020 to protect our staff & our public and to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Our focus during these uncertain times has always been:
  • Keep staff and patrons safe and healthy
  • Create and maintain a flexible, consistent and responsive service. Throughout the pandemic we have offered a patron-centric approach, excellent customer service and timeliness
  • Access to collections
  • Create excellent and safe in-person and virtual programming for all age groups
  • Access to technology

We adhere to follow the following procedures to both ensure continuity of service and and safety:

  • Masks have always been required both for staff and patrons
  • Continue to maintain your social distance from your fellow patrons
  • Limited seating for our in-person programming
  • Curbside Service continues to be offered
We will continue to monitor and adjust our services in response to the needs of our patrons and the constraints COVID-19 has presented us.

Get your immunization record through the secure CT WiZ Public Portal, a free service provided by the Connecticut Department of Public Health Immunization Program. Patients and legal guardians can access official immunization records for themselves and their children using the CT WiZ Public Portal.

The CT WiZ Public Portal allows individuals to access their own immunization records, while parents and guardians can also access their child’s records. You have the option of getting a PDF copy of your full immunization record, just your COVID-19 vaccine record, or your SMART Health card, which is a digital copy of your COVID-19 vaccine record that can be stored on your phone as a QR code. If you cannot access your record electronically click here to request your record be mailed or faxed to you
