CLC Media Circuits

 

 

Overview

Circuits are a means of expanding your library's media collections at minimal expense.

Participating libraries join any of several circuits - DVD, audiobooks on CD, and/or foreign and independent films. Usually there is a one-time "buy-in" fee plus an annual fee, which CLC staff use to purchase and maintain collections in these areas. Participating libraries meet periodically - monthly or quarterly - to exchange or "rotate" packets of materials. Thus, the materials make a "circuit" around participating libraries, providing a continuously updated selection at each location. This program is particularly popular with smaller libraries and those with limited non-print budgets.

For more information about circuits, please call the CLC office at 860.344.8777 or contact the following:
