Massachusetts Public Library Trustees Handbook
In service to public libraries since 1952, MLTA's stated primary goal is to foster excellence in public library service within the commonwealth. MLTA works toward this goal by providing continuing education opportunities to trustees; by encouraging trustees to become advocates for public library service; and by promoting the enactment of legislation and funding favorable to public library services. Current and former trustees, librarians, friends of the library, and anyone with a sincere interest in Massachusetts libraries may join. Only current trustees and former trustees may vote on MLTA business. MLTA publishes a newsletter 4 times per year.
