Immigrants & World Languages
According to the 2000 Census, 18.3% of Connecticut residents speak a language other than English in the home. The State Library is exploring ways to help libraries better serve this population.
The primary way that the State Library facilitates idea sharing among libraires serving multilingual populations is through the Welcome Electronic Discussion List. We always welcome new members to the list. We also hold regular meetings on topics of interest to these libraries.
