National Library Week: There’s More to the Story

There’s More to the Story

In addition to the books in the library’s collection, available in a variety of formats, the Danbury Library offers so much more.

This National Library Week, April 23-29, 2023, we’ll be highlighting some of the unique spaces, services, and things to borrow that are available to library patrons.

Transparent Language Online

Looking to learn a new language? Available to all Danbury Library cardholders, this language learning tool provides an effective and engaging experience for language learners looking to build their vocabulary, practice their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, and maintain what they learn.


The MakerLab is a free experiential learning space for patrons to explore the creation and fabrication process. Currently, the MakerLab features 3D printers, a Cricut Maker, a Sewing and Embroidery machine, and a variety of other handy tools to help you bring your projects to life.


Studio 170 is comprised of two recording spaces: one for audio recording and another for video recording. Both studios offer Connecticut residents the opportunity to work with professional grade equipment and to practice getting started with the production process. The studios can be reserved in 2-hour increments up to 4 hours.

Museum passes

You belong in a museum. Borrowable museum passes provide free or reduced admission to some of the area’s most popular institutions. A great choice if you plan to take the whole family to a local attraction over the weekend!

CloudLibrary Newsstand

If you’re stuck in a waiting room or getting ready for a flight, you can use CloudLibrary to access the world’s largest catalog of digital magazines. With your Danbury Library card, you can use your phone or tablet to instantly access 7,000 titles in more than 60 languages.

Sensory Space

Our newest addition to the Danbury Library, the Sensory Space is equipped with a range of furniture and items that provide visual, tactile, auditory, and proprioceptive stimuli. The space provides an environment that offers the opportunity to manage stress and anxiety, work through emotions, explore the senses, and improve focus.
