About meThe Institute Library (founded 1826) is New Haven, Connecticut's oldest independent circulating library and one of the last remaining membership libraries in North America. Conveniently located on Chapel Street in downtown New Haven, the Library provides its members with quiet reading areas and a large circulating collection of up-to-date literature.
About my libraryFor the past 120 years, the Institute Library has focused primarily on collecting titles of popular fiction, mysteries, and general-interest non-fiction. Its shelves continue to feature both classics and forgotten titles of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
