A message from Anita Schwartz, President of the Library Board of Directors:
The Stratford Public Library is celebrating 40 years in its current building at 303 Union
Even before moving to this new building in 1981, the Library served the residents of the
town in long gone facilities on Atlantic Avenue, the old Borough building (currently the
Fire Hall), and a house where the Senior Center now stands for well over 70 years,
mostly through the efforts of volunteers.
This volunteer commitment to the Library continues under current Director, Alfred
Encarnacion, and Assistant Director Sara Figueroa. Their dedication to the Library is a
labor of love and civic pride.
Over the decades the services provided through the dedication of the hundreds of
volunteers, paid and unpaid Directors and Assistant Directors, and the scores of Trustees
have made Stratford’s Public Library a lasting treasure.
