While we are pleased that the Town Manager did not cut any additional funds from the Library's zero growth budget, many residents have expressed a desire to see Sunday hours restored.

The Governor’s proposed budget for FY18-19 ELIMINATES ALL FUNDING for borrowIT CT (formerly known as Connecticard).

Without borrowIT CT you will not be able to use your library card anywhere but in your home library.  There will be no more inter-library loans or going to another town to borrow items.

Contact your State Representatives and State Senator for Newington and urge them to support the full restoration of the funds for borrowIT CT - $806,000.

Contact information is located on the Advocacy Page.
