First, question: when is your assignment due?

Yikes, it’s due tomorrow! If you need a book resource, check out our library catalog and see if we have anything in-house that you can check out today.  But, if you’re reading this at home and you can’t get to the library, take a look at the links to the many digital resources below, including access to online newspapers, magazines and journal articles, arranged by subject. Your library card number is required for many of the resources, so always keep it handy.
Feeling good, I’ve got a week. Great! You can use all of the resources listed above, PLUS you’re not limited to only the books in East Hampton so you can request books from other libraries and we’ll get it to you fast!
I’m ahead of the game, it’s not due for 2 weeks or more. Now you have lots of options, including the digital resources below, plus our multi-library collections of books and media. And explore the Connecticut statewide catalog.
