Governor's Seal


Today, Governor Lamont released his FY 2020 - FY 2021 Biennium Budget. You can view the CT State Library summary page HERE. The full budget is available here.


Key takeaways:

  • CLC ("Support Cooperating Library Service Units") is flat-funded at $124,402 for both FY2020 and FY2021, the same as FY2019.
  • There is a modest increase for DeliverIT ("Interlibrary Loan Delivery Service") in both FY2020 and FY2021.
  • There is a substantial increase in "Personal Services," so as to "annualize funding for state employee wage adjustments." An explanation is forthcoming.
  • All other lines, including ResearchIT ("State-Wide Digital Library") and BorrowIT ("Connecticard Payments") are level-funded.

Please continue to reach out to your legislators and to other library advocates using the information below.
