New Petition Filing Deadline for Board of Trustees:
It is official. The Governor has signed SB 3338 that changed the deadline for filing of petition for library Board of Trustees and other local officers from Christmas Eve, December 24 at 5 PM to December 26 at 5 PM. Note also that objections to petitions must be filed within "5 business days" after the new petition deadline of Dec. 26, so with the weekend and New Year's Day holiday, the objection deadline will be January 3. ILA worked with other local government associations to get this bill passed. Thanks to all who contacted their legislators on this issue.

Work continues on dedup-ing bib records, adding profile information for each member library, a new SHARE website, and, of course, entering codes.
