CLC News, Discounts and More Safety and Security Program Scenes

CLC Dues Are Due

The Library Safety and Security Program co-sponsored by CSL and CLC at (the all new and beautiful!) Wallingford PL was a big hit. Panelists representing mental health and law enforcement professionals as well as library personnel spoke with the sold-out audience about how to make the library safe for staff and patrons.

It's that time of year! Remember that CLC is a statewide library cooperative whose operations depend on both an annual state grant and member libraries' dues and fees. So do the right thing—be cost-conscious, be informed, be cooperative, and pay your dues today! The final deadline for 08-09 dues payments is September 17, 2008.

Photos (clockwise from top): Susan Hansen (West Hartford PL), Sarah Marek, Coleen Sturken, and Lynn Johnson-Corcoran (all of CCSU); Karen Worrall and Elaine Palmer (Torrington PL); Maura Ritz (Fairfield PL), Paula Keegan (Bridgeport PL) and Bernadette Baldino (Easton PL), who was also on the panel. Panelists Mike Daly and Jim Surless (Queens Borough PL) with Meryl Farber (Case Memorial in Orange).

Library Mini Golf Is Launched Since the inaugural event at the Trumbull Public Library in 2006, several libraries across the country have embraced the idea of transforming their library into a miniature golf course for a day as a fundraising event. The continuing enthusiasm for this idea has led to the formation of a non-profit organization dedicated to helping libraries host tournaments across the country. Library Mini Golf now offers to sell or lease miniature golf courses designed to be used in libraries and will supply all necessary equipment for every event. Course design services and full project management of your tournament are also available. There are no upfront costs and every library is guaranteed a substantial profit. Most tournaments yield between $10,000 and $25,000 for the library. For more information visit, or contact Rick Bolton at 203.375.3432.

Mitali Perkins has spent most of her life crossing borders. Born in Calcutta, India, she soon learned to live up to her name, which means "friendly" in the Bangla language— because her family moved so often. Reading always helped her adjust to new places. "Stories were my lifeline, my rock, my stability," she says. "They were what I clutched for balance in that sometimes narrow place between cultures." After studying political science at Stanford and public policy at U.C. Berkeley, Mitali taught at the middle school, high school and college levels. When she began to write fiction, her protagonists were often strong female characters trying to bridge different cultures. Mitali enjoys visiting schools and libraries to discuss "books between cultures" and the life-changing power of story. Contact Mitali at, or visit her website at
