Although West Hartford and more than 100 other libraries across the state saw some storm damage, residents have continued to use them for disaster and social recovery.

“In many towns, I’m getting reports of folks coming to the library just to make connections. They need someone to talk with. They’re meeting their neighbors. They’re sharing stories. They’re using the internet to connect with the larger world. But I think it’s that human connection that I hear about so much in these libraries.”
