Workshop - Public Library Districts

Date: Saturday, September 6, 2008
Time: 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Mohawk Valley Library System will host an informational workshop on Public Library Districts on Saturday, September 6, 2008 from 9 AM until 1 PM at the Rotterdam Branch Library. Libby Post, President and CEO of Communication Services in Albany will present the workshop as part of her work as a consultant with the Division of Library Development. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the Regents Public Library District Initiative and the basics of districts in New York State.

Ms. Post has worked successfully with libraries in New York in exploring options and achieving public library district status. She has also worked with the New York Library Association and the Mid-Hudson Library System, and recently worked with MVLS on the Telling Your Library Story LSTA grant.

Trustees and Library Directors are urged to attend. Your attendance does not indicate a commitment by your library to pursue this governance option, but is a great opportunity to learn more and ask questions.

Contact MVLS to register.
