FY2013 Legislative Agenda Inserts

Providing library services is a cooperative effort and this year’s legislative template reflects the way the library community works together to make a difference in the lives of our residents.  The template pulls each public libraries' local information from the State Aid Program, the Massachusetts Library System (MLS), the automated networks, the Library for the Commonwealth and Perkins Braille and Talking Book Library to demonstrate how the services patrons value are delivered in an cooperative way that saves money.  The template stresses that underfunding in any one area of the library community negatively affects our resource sharing system and our residents.

The MBLC will provide state officials with the local template for your community. Your local template may also be useful in working with trustees, finance committees and other local officials.  You may also want to share the FY2013 Legislative Agenda (pdf). To email it please use the online version.   Posters and bookmarks are also available.  If you would like paper copies of any of these, please contact Celeste Bruno


LOCAL TEMPLATE

Side 1 is your local template complete with data. Templates are listed below alphabetically by municipality.  Side 2 is the Collaborative Library Services (pdf) graphic.
