ATTENTION:  Do you know of a Non-Profit Organization that could use some books? Non-Profit Organizations are invited to come on Sunday April 30th, 3:15 to 4:00, following the Books By the Bag Sale, to take books free of charge. Proof of non profit status is required at check in and you must bring your own containers for the books.

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.
