Pandemic Supplies & Equipment:

Where to Buy, How to Save

 

AN IMPORTANT NOTE ON SUPPLIERS AND PRICING

  • We have tried to provide members with a variety of options in each category, including local businesses and large national suppliers.
  • In some cases, you will find significant gaps in pricing among suppliers, but your time also has value!
  • Local providers have supplies in stock and are able to deliver right away, and can provide customization to meet your needs.

CT schools, local governments and non-profits, including almost all CLC member libraries, have full access to the MarketPlace.
