The Executive Board of the Western Massachusetts Regional Library System (WMRLS) met on June 17th to hear a recommendation by MLS Executive Director, Greg Pronevitz, to investigate new avenues, in addition to continuing to seek a tenant, to eliminate the unnecessary costs incurred for the Whately facility as well as the staff responsibilities required to manage a large building.  These avenues include putting the facility up for sale.  The Board voted to accept the recommendation.  The MLS Executive Board also acts as the Executive Board of WMRLS.
