Library Legislative Breakfast with Stan Rosenberg


WHAT: Library Legislative Breakfast
WHEN: Friday February 2, 2018, 7:30 AM
WHERE: Forbes Library, Reference Room. 20 West Street. Northampton, MA.

Forbes Library is hosting a Library Legislative Breakfast on Friday, February 2, 2018 at 7:30 AM. This free event is open to the public and is a great opportunity to show support for adequately funding libraries and an opportunity to speak with elected officials. A buffet breakfast begins at 7:30 AM in the beautiful Forbes Library supported by the Western MA Library Advocates and the Friends of Forbes Library.

State funded programs are critical to the provision of library services. Citizens of Massachusetts rely on the links between libraries provided through state funding for interlibrary loan delivery, research databases, e-book collections, grant funds, professional development opportunities, and automated networks that provides modern access to and between libraries. State support for public libraries continues to be down. This has placed immense burdens on local library budgets.
