MSLA Region: Metrowest
Greetings Metrowest Members!
Welcome to MSLA Metrowest! Amy and Patsy are your new Area Co-Directors for the 2016-17 school year.
We are excited for some innovative and creative gatherings, beginning this September (date and place to be announced.) Last year's programs included learning about library goals and DDMs with April Mazza in Natick, enjoying the display of the Family Trees Exhibit in Concord, re-grouping after ALA midwinter in Millis, and discussing Middle/High School libraries and the databases with Marlene Heroux in Ashland.
To better serve you, we'd like to meet in libraries throughout the region. Please host a meeting - we'll provide the snacks, agenda and speakers. (Email us if you're interested!)
Also, let us know what you'd like to explore to improve your library, your professional knowledge, or your personal growth. Have a great summer and we'll share our great "beach reads" in the fall!
