Welcome to the Roadshow!
On Wednesday, September 10, 2014, 18 staff from 12 libraries braved the stormy weather to gather in Monticello. We had a great time talking about the next steps in resource sharing throughout the consortium and appreciate everyone taking the time to gather and share their recommendations and experiences! A special thanks to Monticello-Union Township Public Library for being great hosts.
