CLC Talking Points: Fund CLC and stretch Connecticut's tax dollar

Posted By CLC Staff, Monday, March 4, 2019

 Fund CLC and stretch Connecticut’s tax dollar.
  • CLC’s statutory charge to negotiate cost savings contracts for Connecticut’s public libraries has been gutted by continual budget cuts. In 2018, state funding only covered 15% of this cost-effective program that saved $7.4 million in hard-earned taxpayer dollars. These cuts have also undermined CLC’s ability to provide professional development and resource-sharing programs.
  • CLC manages over 40 contracts that provide a $60 public service return on investment for every tax dollar used.
  • Our libraries need Connecticut to fund more than 15 percent of CLC’s budget so it can stop bleeding its reserves dry. Restore state support by $208,100 to cover at least 30% of CLC's budget.
  • CLC unifies Connecticut libraries so they can deliver a higher return on taxpayer investments. One CLC replaces duplicative research, purchasing and negotiation activities at over 700 libraries and in every municipality.
