Western Massachusetts Library Club Annual Meeting

The Western Massachusetts Library Club (WMLC) held it's annual meeting on October 29, 2008 at the Holyoke Public Library. WMLC has been in existence since 1898, and this group of active and retired librarians supports the services of the Western Massachusetts Regional Library System, donates money from its Humphry Fund for the purchase of professional titles at WMRLS, and offers programs of interest and education for western Massachusetts librarians and library users. This fall's program was Mountain Park by Jay Ducharme, local author of the book by the same name. Mr. Ducharme's slides and conversation about the history of this local landmark were fact-filled and entertaining, and his enthusiasm for his topic is infectious!
