Subject: Save CT Libraries: Stop the Budget Cuts!

  The governor's proposed budget will not only zero-out funding for Connecticut libraries, but will eliminate the statutes that allow these valuable programs to exist. Once eliminated, it will be near impossible to re-establish critical public library statutes. 

What Does This Mean for You and Your Community?
Cuts to ConnectiCard
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
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
The funding helps libraries already under financial strain to continue to provide necessary services to residents. Cutting grants hurts those people who need libraries most.
