MLS: Making the Connection PDF Print E-mail

Susan Babbby Susan Babb

We are rolling the recertification process out in stages with over 1000 schools to check. MLS is in the process of contacting our third batch of school librarians. This third batch includes school names beginning with “Lilla” and ending with “Raynham”.

Thus far, response has NOT been robust. Out of 520 members contacted, only 319 have responded.

You can review our process in the January Forum article .

This first contact is by email. Please do not discard! Take the 5 minutes to go to the online form and submit your information! Please do this even if there are no changes. MLS need this for our membership database.

If we don’t hear from you at all, your school will end up being removed from MLS membership. If you think you should have already received the email, you can contact Shirley MacLean, Member Services/Office Support, This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it .

MLS is hoping to complete this process before summer. We thank those who have responded and hope the next two batches have a higher return.
