"Cover" of Connecticut Public Libraries: A Statistical Profile
Data organized by library and by municipality.  Use the filter/sort tool that allows users to choose specific libraries by any variable (including population and wealth) and then sort them by any variable. This is an important tool if you are trying to compare libraries that serve the same size and type of community. Covers July 2017 to June 2018.

The CT Public Library Annual Report provides the data for this Profile.
