 To the public library community of Connecticut:

> The Southern New England Law Librarians Association (SNELLA) and the
> American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) are partnering with local
> Connecticut bar associations and others to mount a petition drive to save
> five out of the six courthouse law libraries slated by the Judicial Branch
> to be closed this year: Bridgeport, Hartford, Norwich, Milford, Litchfield
> and Willimantic. There is no petition to save the Willimantic Courthouse
> library because the courthouse is likely being closed, and there is no staff
> overseeing a very small collection. SNELLA, AALL and the local bars believe
> strongly that closing these five Courthouse libraries will adversely
> affect pro se litigants, the Connecticut legal community and the clients
> they serve. Please help our efforts --  please pass these petitions along
> to friends, family and co-workers who may feel strongly about this issue.
> Please be sure to sign all 4 petitions, as they are not the same.

Note: these petitions will also be available on the SNELLA

Thank you for your support.
