Silas Bronson Library is a Depository Library

As a depository library the Silas Bronson Library receives publications from both the Connecticut state government and United States federal government. Many documents are now available through links in the Silas Bronson Library catalog.


If you need help finding government related information please ask for assistance from the staff at the information desk. Government documents are located in several collections throughout the library and some of the items are available online. If the item you see in the catalog has "website" in the collection field then click on the title of that item and you will be brought to a page where you can click on a link to access the website.

Internet access in the library is free to all of our patrons but does require a login code. If you need assistance accessing online documents please see a librarian at the information desk.

A more complete print collection is available at the Connecticut State Library, most of which can be found on the state catalog CONSULS.


The current editions of the list of print magazines are located in the Main Reading Room and are shelved with the general magazine collection.

  • Army History
  • English Teaching Forum

  • Talking Book Topics  - In the main reading room on the table next to the library catalog computer.
