Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Storrs Library staff is working remotely and we are continuing to support you!
We are responding to email and phone inquiries to our voicemail as staffing allows between the hours of 9 to 5, Mondays thru Fridays. When leaving a voicemail, we gently remind our patrons to include their best callback number in the message.
Library staff remain available to continue to assist with eReader assistance, signing up for library cards, accessing the library’s wealth of electronic resources for leisure and learning, education and/or information assistance and more.
On Thursday and Friday mornings between the hours of 9 AM to 12 PM, library staff is offering a LIVE Virtual Reference Desk service where patrons can drop in and speak with a staff member directly. Please note that staff is limited and that while the room is in use, the room will be locked. If the room is locked, please try again shortly.
Our LIVE Virtual Reference Desk is made possible using the Jitsi Meet platform. Learn more about Jitsi Meet on their website. New to Jitsi Meet?
