Midstate Library Service Center to Re-open October 19

Good news!

The Midstate Library Service Center will re-open to school and public libraries on Tuesday, October 19.

DOL will send a letter this week (via email) to all school and public libraries with details about MLSC services and our new borrowing policies. We urge libraries to review the new policy (to be posted later this week on the DOL website) before visiting MLSC. Please note that we are not able to extend service to the general public.

New MLSC hours: Tuesday and Thursday, 10 am – 4 pm.

MLSC will keep this schedule of reduced hours until further notice. We are continuing the long, arduous process of weeding and merging three book collections (Midstate Library, State Library in Montpelier, and Northeast Regional Library) which will be completed no later than June 30, 2011.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. If you have questions, please contact Jeremiah Kellogg at MLSC (828-232-0) or Assistant State Librarian Christine Friese (828-2714).
