CTBL will host our annual Patron Open House on Tuesday, July 12, 2016, from 10 am until 1 pm. Come visit the library to meet staff and local narrators and tour the library. At 11 am Cary Johnson, Director of Crime Prevention in the 1st District Attorney's Office, will present the "Power Against Fraud Seminar." Get more information from the official invitation.

CTBL's year-long program, "Leaving on my own Terms" explores living, dying, grief and legacy. Our final event for this program will be reading The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe in May followed by a Book Talk in June. Call the library for more information or visit the events page. Audio recordings for all of the conference calls are available on our audio files page.

One of our volunteers, Ken Rinehart, created a promotional video for the library. Click on the image below to see the video.
