Please mark your calendar for The Elihu Burritt Library Donor Recognition event 5:30 – 8:00PM, on Friday, September 27th, 2019.  It will be a nice event with music, food, wine and time to socialize.

The Burritt Library is an  essential part of the CCSU campus and is instrumental in student success. The Friends of the Library has many wonderful donors from campus, alumni and the community.

During the DDD campaign one of the donors said: “It is essential that tweeting NEVER replaces reading! Three cheers for libraries!!!”

We want to give special recognition to our most dedicated and generous donors at this special event, and show our appreciation to all of you who use the Library.

More information and invitations will be forthcoming. Have a great Summer!
