All About Connecticut

Brought to You by the K of C
The local chapter of the Knights of Columbus, 6190 Belltown Council, recently offered their annual donation to our library. For almost a decade, the Knights have supported books and reading as a community enterprise; donations have been used to enrich a variety of collections, particularly those of interest to children and young adult readers.

This year, the Knights' donation was used to support local family and individual interest in our state's history and lore, as well as its travel destinations, both outdoor and indoor. Please be sure to thank a Belltown Knight for the pleasure you'll find in the pages of the following books:
