Three Commissioners, Katherine Dibble, Greg Shesko and Alice Welch of the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC), visited the MLS Whately offices on Thursday, December 16. The three commissioners had never had the opportunity to visit the Whately offices and took it upon themselves to schedule an informational visit.

Additionally, the commissioners took the opportunity to speak with the MLS Whately staff about advocacy needs and to solicit opinions on the future impact of the recently announced budget cuts on MLS services and Massachusetts’ libraries.
