  • Cuts to borrowitCT

    The State of Connecticut is proposing to CUT $100,000 from borrowitCT (formerly Connecticard).  This service delivers materials all over the state and allows libraries to share materials and saves the residents of Connecticut $52,000,000.

  • Cuts to CLC

    The State of Connecticut is also proposing to flat-fund the Connecticut Library Consortium (CLC).  The consortium has saved Connecticut libraries $6.45 million dollars but offering reduced cost trainings, bulk pricing for materials and databases and supplies.

    For every $1 of state investment in CLC, Connecticut libraries saved $52.
