Additional Information: 

“Connecticut libraries – they’re in the answer business” was a public relations campaign to promote public libraries as well as the services provided by the Connecticut Library Association. The campaign ran from 1981 – 1982 and featured illustrations by children’s author and illustrator, Maurice Sendak (1928 – 2012), on various promotional materials such as buttons, bookmarks, and bags. The illustrations were based on characters Sendak had created for his book, Where the Wild Things Are (1963).
