Speaker: Greg Pronevitz, Executive Director, Massachusetts Library System
Speaker: Kelly Woodside, BiblioTemps Manager, Massachusetts Library System

Libraries in Massachusetts needed assistance meeting short-term staffing needs, while library workers wanted opportunities to earn income, gain experience, and stay connected to the field during unemployment or retirement. The Massachusetts Library System recognized a potential solution that could also generate additional revenue for our collaborative: a temporary library staffing service. This session will explain the process of launching BiblioTempsĀ® as a successful statewide initiative; describe specific benefits to client libraries, staff, and the collaborative; and share observations about the library work force from our first two years of operation.
