MLS is seeking librarians/staff in member libraries to participate on three MLS committees.  We seek representatives from all member library types, i.e. special, academic, school, and public libraries from all areas of the Commonwealth.  MLS committees normally meet four times per year and some meetings are held via webinar/conference call to encourage wide participation. Committee members are appointed for two years.

We need your input to ensure that we meet your needs.

If you would like to volunteer, please visit our site by March 22, 2013 to specify your committee preference and briefly describe why you would like to serve on the committee.  Here’s a link:
