About Enfield Public Library

The mission of the Enfield Public Library is to be a focal point of the Enfield community by providing all residents and community members with a variety of resources and activities that educate, enrich, and entertain. The library strives to provide a welcoming environment that inspires lifelong learning and community engagement.


Town Librarian, Melissa Hutson, recently commented on the migration:

As a really small library where staff wear many hats including doing most of our IT support, I never felt like I was handling the migration alone thanks to ByWater support. Koha will streamline staff tasks and it also offers many features our patrons have been requesting for a while, such as being able to login to their accounts to place holds and renew items, that weren't easily managed in our old system. In the last week, patron feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, we are so pleased that our community knows we are still trying serve them as best we can in these strange times."
