MBLC Trustee Handbook
As the MBLC prepares a revised and updated Trustee Handbook we invite you to use this 2012 transitional draft to replace your 2000 handbook. In this draft, selected information has been updated such as addresses, phone numbers and web addresses in addition to agency name changes and changes to Massachusetts law pertaining to libraries. We welcome your feedback as we revise the Trustee Handbook. Please contact Erin Williams-Hart, Trustee/Friends Information Specialist, with your comments.
