Make some noise for CT libraries! Speak out in support of library funding and help us fight the governor’s proposed budget to eliminate ConnectiCard, CLC, and grant funding.
What does this mean for you and your community?
Cuts to ConnectiCard mean:
Connecticut residents will only be able to borrow books from their hometown library—the ability to borrow from any public library in the state will disappear.
Cuts to CLC mean:
The Connecticut Library Consortium (CLC) will no longer be able to save $7.1 million in taxpayer dollars by coordinating statewide purchasing contracts for books and services.
Cuts to Grants mean:
This funding helps libraries already under financial strain to continue to provide necessary services to residents. Cutting grants hurts those people who need libraries the most.
What can YOU do? Write, call, or email your legislatures and governor:
Now is not the time to remain quiet! Once these statutes are eliminated, they will be nearly impossible to reinstate.
