Returns do not require appointments and must be done during library open hours: returning library users should call the library upon arrival in the parking lot and a librarian will meet you in the lobby to receive your library materials.

Library materials left unattended are NOT guaranteed to be received by library staff.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, library users and the public are not currently allowed in the library's physical space (which is located at 100 Roscommon Drive, Suite 110, Middletown, CT 06457). Learn about our full COVID-19 access restrictions here.

To access library materials, users must:

  1. Reserve materials ahead of time by logging into their library account and putting holds on desired items.
  2. Once email notification is received by the user confirming their item is READY FOR PICKUP: make an appointment using the online calendar on this page. Appointments are only required for material pick ups; users do not need an appointment for a return, only to come during the library business hours posted on this page.

Schedule Your Library Visit

Scheduled & Unplanned Library Closures

The Library website and the Library Catalog will both announce any scheduled and unplanned closures.

The State Education Resource Center observes federal and state holidays and the library will be closed during these days. Scheduled closures may also occur (albeit infrequently) for any all-staff events such as the organization's annual Dismantling Systemic Racism conference. These closures will be posted online a week in advance.

If the Library closes due to an unanticipated event such as inclement weather, SERC librarians will contact any library users via email or phone with appointments to reschedule.
