Through the borrowIT CT program, the 1,276,686 Connecticut residents with library cards can check out items from any and all of the 191 public libraries in the state, even if they don't live in that town. This gives them access to 13 million items, 86% of which are books.
Libraries that lend the most to non-residents receive higher payments because they also contribute more of their own resources to the program.
