Thank You to Western Mass. Delivery Specialists

To all members of the former Western Massachusetts Regional Library System:

As you all know the Delivery Specialists jobs for MLS will be ending on June 30th. Several Western Mass. librarians have expressed their wish to thank these dedicated, caring and hard-working people in a special way.

The Board of Directors of the Western Massachusetts Library Advocates (WMLA) has agreed to oversee this effort. Our Treasurer Sue SanSoucie and Assistant Treasurer Bonnie Isman are very willing to gather any donations for this purpose. This is understandably a very bittersweet time for the drivers. After discussions with Mary King, the drivers have asked that any funds collected go toward a picnic for drivers and their families along with current and former staff of WMRLS at a local park, to provide an “end-of-an-era” opportunity to reminisce. Any donations remaining after the picnic expenses would be divided among the current drivers (including ones who have recently left MLS for other jobs) in an equitable manner.

PLEASE NOTE: MAIL only checks or money orders, made payable to “Friends of WMRLS, Inc.” (our new incorporation is still in process!) and, this is VERY IMPORTANT, on check’s memo line please write “WMRLS Driver Thanks”.

MAIL to: WMLA Treasurer Sue SanSoucie, MLS-Whately, P.O. Box 609, S. Deerfield, MA 01373-0609

Please include a return address. All checks must be received by June 24, 2011.

Please avoid using delivery as we don’t wish to make extra work for the drivers during their last few weeks!

If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your time.

I wish you all the best,


Deborah G. Bruneau, President of
Western MA Library Advocates, and
Director of Adams Free Library
