FYI: Requesting items from other libraries

The state library is in the final phase of reorganizing its delivery service. It’s possible that items you request may not arrive for several weeks. If you need an item immediately, you may want to go directly to the owning library to pick it up; you can call ahead to make sure the item is in, and staff can place it on the library’s hold shelf for you. Your current Shelton library card can be used in any CT library. Thanks for your patience!
