Bus to State House for MLA Rally for Libraries

Dear Western Region Library Supporters:

The Friends of the Central and Western Regions have chartered a bus to help people get to the State House in Boston for the Nov. 4 MLA Library Rally. This year, with deep State budget cuts threatening the very existence of Regions and other statewide services, it is extremely important that library supporters show up and let legislators, decision-makers and the media know how important libraries are, especially in these difficult economic times.

The bus will start at Table & Vine in W. Springfield, then the Palmer Public Library and the Central Region headquarters in Shrewsbury. Due to the cost and short advance notice, we are not able to provide a stop at WMRLS Headquarters in Whately.

For more details and the registration form, click on

After clicking on “Register” please complete the form, including your stop, and submit the form.

Seating is limited, so please register as soon as possible.

There is no charge for the bus to riders, although donations will be accepted on the bus if people want to help defray the costs.

Many thanks for your interest and support of statewide library services.

~ John Ramsay, WMRLS Regional Administrator
