Lobbying for Library Funding

Friends members and library advocates Kate Kruckemeyer and Sandy Ward met with our State Rep Aaron Vega at the annual Library Legislative Breakfast with State Senator Don Humason on January 20, 2017.  It was held in Easthampton, in the Williston Memorial Library.

We listened to speakers representing library users, library directors, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commission (MBLC), as well as legislators from several local towns and cities.  We heard details of the budget shortfalls in library funding, and were advised about strategies for lobbying for increased funding.
