Danbury has recently been reminded about the power of Mother Nature. We had an earthquake on August 23. This past weekend we felt the power of Hurricane Irene and are still suffering from its aftermath with widespread loss of power. Danbury has suffered things like this before. One of its greatest natural disasters was the great flood of the Still River in October of 1955. There is a marvelous book of photographs of this disaster in the Local History Room. But we came through these disaters and prospered. The library can help people without power. We have Internet access, Wi-Fi access and power to charge your cell phones. We are available to help you.
