The Maine Library Advisory Council communicates regional needs and opportunities for enhanced services and training, represents the needs of Maine libraries to the Maine Library Commission and the Maine State Librarian and the Director of Library Development, and provides a communications network between the Maine State Library, the Maine Library Commission and the libraries in each region.
The Council is composed of 13 representatives, one from each region (9) - one of these nine representatives will be a member of the Maine Library Commission; one member who is a public library patron (1), plus three (3) At-Large representatives to ensure that the council reflects all Maine library types (public, school, academic and special).
Ex-Officio to the council will be the State Librarian, Director of Library Development, and MSL Regional Liaisons.
Representatives from ARRC libraries, Maine InfoNet, MLA, MASL, HSLIC, Trustees, and library patrons are invited to all meetings to ensure wide communication.
