Posted by cslibweb in updates.

Due to the state’s difficult budget times, all Connecticut State Library facilities will be closed on Friday as part of a statewide furlough day.  Normal operations will resume on Tuesday, May26th (following the Memorial Day holiday).

From Governor M. Jodi Rell’s memo to state agency directors:

“As you know, we are facing difficult budget times in Connecticut. As a result the recently signed SEBAC agreement calls for an unpaid furlough day on Friday, May 22nd.  All agencies must adhere to the agreement other than those who must maintain 24/7 operations.”

Library Closed Friday, Saturday, and Monday Monday, May 18, 2009

The Index to Connecticut Special Acts, 1944-2008 is now available online. Kudos to Indexer Cheryl Fox for this major accomplishment!

Together with the recently released General Index to the Private Laws and Special Acts of the State of Connecticut, 1789-1943
legal researchers and historians now have access to 220 years of Connecticut legislation not included in the General Statutes.

Both indexes are also linked from the State Library’s Public and Special Acts page.
