Comments on: State budget affects library users http://www.waltham.lib.ma.us/blog/main/?p=451 WPL's Blog Tue, 31 Mar 2015 03:16:18 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.2.1 By: Kate http://www.waltham.lib.ma.us/blog/main/?p=451#comment-2202 Kate Tue, 06 Oct 2009 21:30:08 +0000 http://www.waltham.lib.ma.us/blog/main/?p=451#comment-2202 At this point, you can help by including library services in your conversations and correspondence with elected officials. Politicians at all levels will continue to face difficult decisions about funding for library services in addition to police, fire, schools, health and social services. Let them know that libraries matter to you. The Massachusetts Library Association's site is a good source for alerts about library-related votes at the state and federal levels: http://capwiz.com/ala/ma/state/main/?state=MA or click from masslib.org. In Waltham, a growing number of volunteers is helping the staff keep the library in order these days. Most volunteer jobs involve straightening, shelving and retrieving library materials; some volunteers assist with Friends publicity, data entry, and other tasks. There are volunteer applications at the circulation desks. Thank you for asking!

The WPL is a major resource for everyone, especially in these times of financial downturn. Is there a way to create an online petition that would make an impression or provide support? Also, are there any tasks that could be done by community volunteers, to alleviate the load on the library staff? Thanks for the blog and FB posts BTW!!
