New State Library Regulations

The Connecticut State Library has issued new regulations that restrict the type and amount of materials sent through the DeliverIT CT service, formerly known as Connecticar or C-Car.  The regulations are intended to reduce the cost of this state-funded delivery service in view of budget cuts imposed by state government.  The restrictions are in effect as of July 1, 2016.

The regulations will affect library patrons as follows:

  • Libraries shall limit patron placed holds on materials not owned by their library to 5 simultaneous holds.
  • New materials (acquired within the previous 6 months) will not be delivered by deliverIT CT.
