E-cycling at Avon Library

When you return your library books you can now also drop off small electronics like cellphones and iPods, along with empty inkjet printer cartridges, for proper recycling.  The library’s e-cycling bins are located at the end of the Gallery hallway, near the Community Room and right next to the Friends of the Library’s book donation closet and the VFW’s flag disposal bin.

While the library only accepts small electronics, Avon residents can recycle many other things free of charge at the Avon Transfer Station.  Visit their website at www.avonct.gov/transfer-station to learn more.

Online SAT and ACT test prep with your library card!

Designed to work seamlessly with students’ unique learning styles and busy schedules, Method Test Prep’s ACT and SAT prep programs help students raise their ACT scores an average of three points and their SAT scores an average of 150 points.  Diagnostic evaluations, lessons, quizzes, and full-length exams help students strategically navigate the SAT and ACT by focusing on both content and test-taking techniques. Students also build their fundamental reading comprehension, grammar, and math skills.

Each lesson is less than five minutes long and contains examples. After the lesson there is a short quiz prompting students to practice the strategies they have learned. All quizzes contain immediate feedback including a video explanation, an audio explanation, and a written explanation.

Check out one a one week access pass with your Avon Library card and start studying today!  After the week is up, just check it out again if you want to continue your lessons.  First time users need to register with RBdigital, unless you already have a login from one of our other RBdigital services.

 

New hours for the library!

Starting after Labor Day, the Avon Library will be open until 8:30 on Wednesday evenings, just like we are on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  We hope this change makes it easier for you to visit the library to browse, borrow, socialize and study.

We will also be returning to our full day Saturday hours, with the library open from 10-5, on Saturdays, beginning September 8.

All library hours, including holiday closings, can be found at avonctlibrary.info/hours.
