Pay fee – nonprofit gets full gift, No Thank you

First State Bank gifted their current 26,000 square foot, two story building located on North Water Street to the New London Public Library in April 2022. This generous gift will allow everything in the current library and the needed technology spaces that have been in the planning stage for the last three years to be housed under one roof. The bank building will be remodeled to fit the needs of the library.

The remodeled building will include:

  • STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) area for discovery/learning opportunities
  • Spaces to learn, explore, share and create
  • Expanded adult services area
  • Space for teens/young adults to gather
  • A greatly expanded children’s area including interactive play and a program room
  • A community meeting room with a kitchen for educational and organizational events
  • A space to create and edit music
  • A video room with a green screen and equipment to create and edit videos
  • More computers for public use
  • Small meeting rooms that can be used for study groups, tutoring, mentoring, etc.
  • All the books, magazines, DVDs, etc. housed in the current library building

The museum will move up from their current location in the lower level of the library/museum to occupy the entire building.

The volunteer fund raising committee approved by the Board of the New London Library/Museum has raised about $2.3 million for the remodeling project. We need another $1.2 million to accomplish our goal. We know the remodeled building will be the heart of the downtown area and a source of pride for our citizens.
