 Love libraries? We need your help.

April hosts National Library Week, April 12 – 18. However, this year the mood is not one of celebration but one of worry. The proposed budget for the state will eliminate 30% of the funding provided to the state library. This cut would deeply affect the services of the Clark Memorial Library, as well as the way you use any Connecticut library. Contact your State Representative by clicking here.
The service known as Connecticard will be eliminated. This is the program of library reciprocity. Right now library card holders can use any library in the state. When a non-resident uses another library, that library receives a dime per item checked out. This is an incentive for libraries to share their collections. Smaller libraries and towns greatly benefit because we cannot purchase every item a patron might want to use, and the yearly payment goes directly back into book purchases. Patrons benefit because you are free to use any library and have greater access to materials  that you want to borrow from anywhere in the state. (more…)

We want to engage, connect and grow with you on Instagram.  Please follow us on Instagram.  Why? The library is full of engaging ideas.  Sometimes the best way to connect to an idea or to information is visually.  When that happens, we grow with you and you with us.  By the way, we also have a Facebook page.  We use it to post events, information about authors and literature, and as a way of getting feed back from you.  To follow us on Instagram, look for bethanylibrary.  On Facebook we are Clark Memorial Library.  Or, click on the icon for Instagram or the word Facebook.

 

Do you dmvhave a soon to be driver in your family?  Getting ready to take the learner’s permit test has never been easier.  Through a generous offer from the Drivers-Test.org, we are able to offer teens and all drivers an interactive database for studying the rules of the road and for making sure you understand those rules by taking practice tests.  As you know driving is all about planning, anticipation and maneuvering.  This new service will help you plan, anticipate and maneuver one of the most important tests of your life.  Just click the picture and get started!
