Branch History

From 1899 to 1916 (when a full-fledged branch opened in the Town Hall), library services were offered in St. Bernard through a delivery station in a grocery store. In 1918 the St. Bernard Branch moved from the Town Hall to the high school, where it remained for the next fifty-two years. In January, 1970, the branch opened in its present location, the St. Bernard Municipal Center.
