CT Libraries

Click this LINK for location information for every TOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY listed with iCONN, in the state of Connecticut. You can click on them directly from the page, to get specific details for the library of your choice. Libraries are an integral part of most, if not all, homeschoolers' lives. Each of the libraries will offer something different to the homeschool community, as they reach out to us in their own unique ways.

Some libraries offer homeschoolers extended loan times for materials they check out; access to educational kits available to teachers; homeschool storytimes; book discussion groups. Many will accommodate homeschool groups who need a meeting space, by letting them use their meeting room facilities.

Another resource that most (if not all) libraries have, is museum passes. These passes are free to town residents, at their local library. Some libraries will also give the passes to non-residents, as well. These passes offer free admission to a variety of museums, or a reduced admission price. Check it out ! Support your area library, and say THANK YOU for their continued support of the homeschool community in CT.
