Friends of the Library in Connecticut

Friends of the Library and the Connecticut State Library
The State Library provides a number of resources to library Friends groups. The Division works closely with The Friends of Connecticut Libraries (FOCL) helping local communities start Friends, providing information and resources to established groups, offering advice and consulting assistance to Friends and maintaining an extensive collection of resources for Friends at the Middletown Library Service Center. Some of their activities include a quarterly newsletter FOCLPOINT, FOCL-Forum electronic discussion list, workshops on subjects of value to Friends and their libraries, a directory of local Friends groups and their activities, and cooperation with other library organizations (Connecticut Library Association , Association of Connecticut Library Boards, United for Libraries.) to advance the cause of libraries throughout the state and on a national level. There are 150 local Friends groups in Connecticut.
