Library Legislative Day Monday, March 31!

The Western Massachusetts Library Advocates have hired a bus to take library supporters to the State House for Legislative Day.  This gives you a chance to meet with your legislators, network with colleagues from all types of libraries and participate in the Mass. School Library Association Bookmarks awards.  Our own Western Mass Senator Stan Rosenberg will be honored with an Advocacy Award. 

Talking points for the Legislative Agenda will be handed out on the bus or we can get you one ahead of time if you like.

Join us on the bus to Boston for the very reasonable cost of $20.00 per person.  People coming from Berkshire County who carpool in cars holding 2 or more people will be reimbursed for travel to West Springfield.

 The pick-up spots are:
            7:30 am          Table &Vine Liquors, West Springfield
            8:15 am           Palmer Public Library
            9:00 am           Auburn Public Library

The bus will leave Boston at 2:30 pm and will arrive in West Springfield by 4:30 pm.  The group discount cost is still only $20 per person.  This price is a great deal, less than the cost of parking in a Boston garage for five hours. Complete the form below and mail with your check to: WMLA, PO Box 609, So. Deerfield, MA  01373 ~or~ send through delivery to MLS/ Whately Attn: WMLA .  Please include the memo “Legislative Bus” on your check.
