|MLS: Making the Connection|
by 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.
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.
