Connecticut State Library

Established in 1854, the Connecticut State Library is an Executive Branch agency of the State of Connecticut. The State Library provides a variety of library, information, archival, public records, museum, and administrative services for citizens of Connecticut, as well as for the employees and officials of all three branches of State government. The State Library also serves students, researchers, public libraries and town governments throughout the state.

The collections were first kept in the State Houses in Hartford and New Haven and then in the present-day Capitol. In 1910 they were relocated to the State Library and Supreme Court building in Hartford where they are housed today.

[Editors' Note:  While the Native Northeast Portal contains over one thousand documents from the Connecticut State Library's collections, providing a listing of them together under a CSL heading is a new feature initiated during the 2021-2023 NEH Grant period.  As time permits, we will continue to backfill this page.]
