Find Stuff

The shared statewide catalog is called findIT CT. Not all libraries are included in the catalog, but any library CAN be included. Also, any library will be able to borrow items through requestIT CT. Take a look at this page of information for ILL staff.

The Middletown Library Service center houses a collection of children's and YA books, professional literature, storytime kits, puppets, and much more!

The collection of Large Print books for children, YA, and adults is located at the Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped in Rocky Hill.

The Service Center houses a large collection of professional development books, which you can borrow for 90 days. Search Primo to find them.

This collection includes:

  • Neal-Schuman "How-To" series for librarians

  • Other titles relevant to the library profession

Many databases and periodicals are freely available to Connecticut libraries and patrons through researchIT CT. This is where you find Consumer Reports, Hartford Courant, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and many other resources.
