Thank you for being proactive.  Your plan for getting rid of the Spambots is appreciated by this newbie.

The Sharon show was a bit slow, but the people were great the photos were amazing. I look forward to being able to link to the photo of the young man who drove his pony cart around town and gave rides to girls. Hah! (And now a profile photo has been added).

Thank you, Joanne, for the welcome.  I agree that the Mass. History Conference was superb, the best yet.  I am really interested in getting word out about our annual Boston Charter Day activities in September.  I will add the details to the calendar after tomorrow's Partnership of the Historic Bostons meeting.  However, I need your advice about the best way to get the word out to people on this site.  Any suggestions about things that have worked for others would be appreciated.

Still haven't mastered messages here yet, so in case my note got lost, hearty congratulation to you again. And as for the blog - - a random scrapbook, really - -  when you go to the front page should have a "subscribe" tab at the top.

Thanks, Joanne, for your lead to the 3 pages of education resources--I suppose you are trying to locate ones that are not so obvious as at HGSE library. I am not familiar as I should be with the education professional field. Good luck with your work. Don Gardner

Thanks for the quick response! I found a message a separate message about the spammer after I wrote you, so wondered if that was what it was. So there's a silver lining to spam!

Public Libraries - too important to fail

The Boston Public Library Board of Trustees recently voted to close 4 branches and cut 94 jobs. Throughout the Commonwealth, public libraries are struggling to stay afloat, and some aren't succeeding.

Public libraries are the heart of our communities and provide a wide range of services that strengthen civic life and engagement, support intellectual freedom and privacy, provide access to information for all, including the under-served and for those on the down side of the digital… Continue
