Building Support for Library Construction ~ Spring WMLA Meeting

From the Ground Up:  Building Support for Library Construction

This is an exciting time for libraries in Western Massachusetts, as many are in the midst of—or have just completed—new construction and renovation projects.  Come hear our panelists discuss some of the great victories and difficult challenges they have faced in the name of building community support and fundraising for new libraries.

           Toni Golinsky-Foisy, Director of the West Springfield Public Library
           Lyn Keating, Director of the Westhampton Public Library
           Mary Anne Antonellis, Director of the M.N. Spear Memorial Library in Shutesbury
           Moderator: Chris Lindquist, Director of the Westfield Athenaeum
On April 16 at 9:30 a.m., the Western Massachusetts Library Advocates (WMLA) will hold their semi-annual meeting at the Westhampton Public Library.  Westhampton’s new library was dedicated in October 2010 after monumental grassroots efforts to raise money and support.  Westhampton received a LEED Gold Certificate for its sustainable design.  The library is located at 1 North Rd., Westhampton, MA.
