As the MBLC revises and updates the 2000 Trustee Handbook, we invite you to use this 2012 transitional draft. It includes updates to contact information and websites, as well as changes to relevant Massachusetts law. If you’d like to share your feedback on the draft, please contact Erin Williams Hart, Trustee/Friends Information Specialist.
Additionally, the MBLC has recently published a Pocket Guide for trustees, adapted from the Handbook.
If your library is part of NOBLE, you can request items from the MBLC library via the links below. If your library is not a part of NOBLE, you may use the Commonwealth Catalog (ComCat).
