On 5/14/20, the Board of Directors of the Larabee Library voted unanimously to delay opening the library.

Our Commitment is to serve the needs of our community in Stafford, and this includes our role to help stall the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) for our patrons, staff, and community.

Our decision is based on recommendations by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and top health officials in the U.S. and our community, based on the demographics of our patrons.

We will be monitoring the situation and will open when we can safely do so.
