Both campuses of Naugatuck Valley Community College are closed until further notice.

Please disregard any automated overdue notices you may have received for items you have placed in the book drop.

To help ensure the health and safety of everyone involved, books will be removed from the book drop once a week on Monday.  Returned items will be isolated for 72 hours before being checked in by a library staff member on Thursday.  This means that there may be a delay between when items are placed in the book drop and when they are checked in.  This delay is necessary, and will not affect your library account.  No items will be considered overdue for the duration of the campus closure.

As a reminder, the book drop in Waterbury is located outside the Fine Arts Center, facing the overflow parking lot.  

Please contact us to learn about the next opportunity to return materials to the Danbury campus.

Members of the library staff are available remotely during the hours listed below.
