Local Governments

The Connecticut State Library offers resources for and about the state’s municipalities.

The Public Records Management Program provides a number of forms, schedules, and trainings for municipal governments.

The Division of Library Development supports local libraries in many ways (offering construction grants, for example).

The Library maintains extensive collections of town reports, histories, maps, vital and church records, charters, ordinances, photographs, and other archival material.  Most of this material is not yet in our catalog, but we’d be happy to assist if you contact us.


Locations of documents published since 1976, including links to online versions, are included in our catalog.


Municipal codes, zoning & subdivision by-laws, ordinances and maps. Coverage: Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
