CW MARS WELCOMES THE HUNTINGTON PUBLIC LIBRARY
On January 1st, we welcomed the Huntington Public Library as the newest member library in CW MARS. Huntington is a small, rural town in Hampshire County, Massachusetts. The population was 2,094 at the 2020 census. Over the past three years, TEN small libraries have joined the CW MARS consortium and taken advantage of the Small Libraries in Network (SLIN) program offered through The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) t o help small Massachusetts public libraries afford membership in an automated resource sharing network like CW MARS. The MBLC believes that full participation in a resource sharing network is the best way to fully serve residents and provide equal access to materials state-wide.
