The Multitype Library Cooperatives (MLCs) have been awarded 2 million in the final budget. It is now time to start thanking the Department and working both them and OPB to make sure the Governors folks recommend to the Governor that we be allowed to keep it.
Letters to the Governor will also be a good idea.

Thank you for supporting the Multitype Library Cooperatives (MLCs) such as SEFLIN. We are pleased that the proposed budget includes $2 Million for the five MLCs to continue the training, consulting, and services important to cultivating excellence in service to library users.
