The Libraries Online! project at the Connecticut State Library System enables local libraries in economically disadvantaged areas with populations of less than 15,000, to provide Internet and Connecticut Library Network access to their communities, provide public access to microcomputers and CD-ROM resources, and to provide training to library staff in the use of computer resources.
Libraries Online! through the Connecticut State Library worked in partnership with ConneCT 96 our state Net Day initiative. ConneCT 96 made it possible for 1200 schools and public libraries in Connecticut to be wired to the Internet. The availability of wiring kits, Internet access, training and volunteers to install the wiring in libraries are all part of this project.
The following Connecticut State communities benefited from the Libraries Online! Program: Ashford, Beacon Falls, Brooklyn, Canterbury, Chaplin, Griswold, Lebanon, Preston, Putnam, Scotland, Sprague, Stafford and Voluntown.
