Proposed State Budget Could Affect WPL Services


By Wallingford Pub... - Posted on 02 June 2009

The state budget proposed by Governor Rell on May 29 eliminates state support for a number of programs that are very important to the services of the Wallingford Public Library.

Perhaps the most critical is the proposed elimination of funding for the Connecticut Education Network (CEN). The CEN provides all of this Library’s public Internet access, and there are no funds in the Library’s budget to pay for alternative Internet services.

Other programs slated for elimination in the May 29 proposal include funding for the Connecticard reciprocal borrowing program, the Connecticar delivery service, the Connecticut Library Consortium, and the ICONN and REQUEST databases. All of these services underpin library resource sharing in Connecticut, and are used daily by Wallingford Library patrons.

If you are concerned or have questions about these proposals, you can contact the Governor’s office and/or your state legislators.
