The Willoughby Wallace Memorial Library is located in the heart of Stony Creek, an old oystering and quarry workers’ village in Branford, Connecticut. The oysters are still harvested and the famous Stony Creek pink granite is still quarried in this unique neighborhood on the Long Island Sound with a view of the Thimble Islands. Residents and visitors enjoy the proximity to the water and the beauty of this special place. The library is an integral part of the civic, social and intellectual life of our community. Within an easy walk or bicycle ride, we offer a friendly environment with current reading materials, technology assistance and a wide array of programs for adults and children. The library building also houses the Keyes Gallery, a light and open space for monthly art exhibits, community meetings, children’s programs, concerts, author readings and other cultural events.
