Welcome: Library Services to Multi-Lingual Communities in Connecticut: Collections in CT Libraries

Collections in Other Languages in Connecticut Public Libraries

These documents contain lists of public libraries in Connecticut that have collections in languages other than English. These lists are extracted from Connecticut Public Libraries: A Statistical Profile, published by the Connecticut State Library. Libraries are on these lists if they responded on the CT Public Library Annual Report that have what they consider "substantial, active, non-English language print collections."

The Excel spreadsheet below is set up for filtering. You can click the arrow in one of the the grey boxes, check to select one of the text filters, and then click the OK button. The spreadsheet will filter to only show you libraries that have collections in a specific language. (Not sure how to limit a list using Excel filters? - Try this Office help page on filtering data in Excel.)
