A Social Distance Challenge to Reach All

Looking for a family-friendly way to compete from the comfort of your own home? Blackstone is putting the social back in social distancing with our first series of challenges.

Mobile tech service now available

Are you stuck at home trying to figure out a problem with your iPad, smartphone, or other device? Trying to access our digital resources but don't know where to begin? Don't worry. We're here to help.

SATURDAYS ARE FOR STORIES

Join us every Saturday at 10:30 AM from the comfort of your couch for stories, songs and finger plays with Miss Mary and Carly.

Resources During Library Closure

We have created a page on our website with links to free concerts, virtual tours, homeschooling websites, online courses and other activities to keep us engaged during the pandemic.

Library Closed until Further Notice

We are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  All fines will be waived until 4/30. Digital Resources are available with a Blackstone Library Card.  Branford residents may complete our online self registration form to have a library card mailed to them. Need help? Contact us by phone or email.

Kanopy and Hoopla Update

Great news from Kanopy and Hoopla! Kanopy is offering a credit-free viewing collection; these borrows will not count towards your monthly limit. In addition, they have made Kanopy Kids completely free. These offers will be available until the middle of April.

Hoopa has made over 1,000 titles borrow free for anyone registered with Hoopla. What this means is that anything in this collection will not count as one of your monthly borrows. You can browse by any format or limit by release date, patron rating or audience. Visit Hoopla Bonus Borrows Collection to see what’s available.

Branford Community Resource Booklet

Canoe Brook Senior Center has put together a comprehensive booklet on currently available resources for seniors — and everyone else! It contains lots of information on local places, meal delivery, and more!

Ancestry Library Edition Access From Home

Thanks to ProQuest, we are now able to provide Blackstone patrons with access to Ancestry Library Edition from home, on a temporary basis, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Simply use your barcode on this page to proceed.

Book Donations to Friends Suspended

While we appreciate the generosity of our patrons, we would ask that you please hold off on leaving book donations for the Friends of the Library in the donation bins. We feel this decision is in the best interests of everyone.
