Connecticut State Library resources on local government

Local Municipal Governments

  • The Connecticut State Library offers resources for and about the state's municipalities.
  • The Public Records Management Program provides a number of forms, schedules, and trainings for municipal governments.
  • The Division of Library Development supports local libraries in many ways (offering construction grants, for example).
  • The Library maintains extensive collections of town reports, histories, maps, vital and church records, charters, ordinances, photographs, and other archival material.

Municipal Documents

We have an extensive historical collection of material published by Connecticut towns, including annual reports, reports of town boards, special reports, and charters and ordinances. Most of this material is not yet in our catalog, but we'd be happy to assist if you contact us.
