CTKG Ella’s Library Circuit So Far…
On September 11, 2019, Connecticut’s Kid Governor Ella Briggs kicked off her 2019 Library Circuit at Raymond Library in East Hartford, Connecticut. She was joined by East Hartford Mayor Marcia Leclerc, Library Director Sarah Kline Morgan and Children’s Librarian Cathy Potter, the East Hartford Brownie Troop and other local students.

On September 14, 2019, CTKG Ella made two Library Circuit stops. In the morning, she visited Russell Library in Middletown to share her Pride-Hope-Love platform.
