#CTPlaces - Advocates for Humanities, Libraries, History & Preservation


The Connecticut Library Association is a member of The CTPlaces Coalition, a group of humanities, history, preservation, and library organizations working together to advocate for what keeps Connecticut a special place. 

Cooperating members of The CTPlaces Coalition include: Connecticut Coordinating Committee for the Promotion of History, Connecticut Historical Society, Connecticut Humanities, Connecticut League of History Organizations, Connecticut Library Association, Connecticut Library Consortium, Connecticut State Library, and the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation

The Connecticut Library Association, CLC and the Connecticut State Library have joined #CTPlaces because we believe that by working with other organizations to raise awareness of all of our advocacy goals, we can build a larger group of supporters across the state. This coalition will supplement, not replace, our own library advocacy efforts.

We look forward to working with you in the months ahead as effective advocates on behalf of the critical issues we care about.
