Connecticut Libraries Help Center: Liaisons

Helping with management, legal, technical, and other issues faced in running your library

DLD Regional Liaison Program

Each consultant in the Division of Library Development provides personalized outreach to a group of principal libraries in contiguous towns. The liaisons help to share information across each region and keep librarians updated on news from the State Library regarding events, resources, training, grants, and other services. The liaisons also gather input and requests from their libraries that will help shape DLD's future services and offerings. DLD's intent with this program is to inform, engage, and empower the Connecticut library community through effective and regular communication.
