About the branch

About Ropkins Library...

In May 1995, the Ropkins Branch and the S.A.N.D. Everywhere School library merged.  A new 5,600 square foot state-of-the-art facility opened in December 1998.  In March 2023, the Ropkins Branch reopened following a renovation. It now houses the Hartford History Center Annex. 

The renovated branch is open to the community.

Ropkins is open Monday-Thursday from 10am-5pm.
