SUSAN HILDRETH
State Librarian of California

Welcome from State Librarian

Not everyone knows the many services and programs the California State Library offers to contemporary Californians. We still collect, preserve and make available materials documenting the history and life of California (as we've been doing since 1850), but today we do much more. Our refurbished newsletter, CSL Connection, will show you what we're achieving and how we strive to impact the quality of life in California.

In quarterly issues, CSL Connection will not only update readers on key state-level issues affecting California libraries, it will also illustrate that the California State Library helps support California’s libraries, California’s government, and the people that government serves. In CSL Connection you’ll read how, from literacy and grant programs, to outreach services for people with disabilities, to exacting research on-demand, the California State Library’s work strengthens, through California’s libraries, the greater California community.

California’s information sharing needs have diversified in the past 155 years. The California State Library has too. We hope you enjoy the new CSL Connection. We welcome your feedback.
