Library Service Centers

Please Note
From Ken Wiggin, CT State Librarian:
The State Library Board voted Monday, March 28, 2016 to consolidate the Willimantic and Middletown Library Service Center operations.  This will result in the closing of the Willimantic Library Service Center. The goal is to complete the move out of the WLSC by June 30th.  A detailed timetable will be forthcoming.

The CT State Library Division of Library Development has two service centers: one in Middletown and one in Willimantic. In addition to IMLS logohousing staff offices, the Service Centers provide meeting space, supplementary and professional collections, and training facilities. The service centers and collections are funded in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Connecticut State Library.
