Save Our Libraries – Urgent

Shelton’s taxes are at a comfortable low rate in part because libraries throughout the state have agreed to share our collections and buying power with each other. Sadly – our state legislators are trying to cut library funding as well as eliminate the statutes that would allow reinstating funding to libraries in the future.

Please watch this short YouTube video to learn more:

Please take the time to email or write to your representatives! Your voice will let them know that library services are important to you – whether you borrow books, movies, download ebooks, use our Wi-Fi or public computers, or even attend our programs.

The message can be short, with a subject such as “Keep Library Funding”– Please keep Connecticard, ConnectiCar, Connecticut Library Consortium, Connecticut Education Network (CEN), State funding for library grants, and PLEASE do not remove the text providing these services from our State statutes.
