MLS Staff News

Dear MLS Members,

I’m writing with some staff news. MLS Resource Sharing Director Steven Spohn will be moving on from MLS to a position as Executive Director of the Ocean State Libraries in RI. His last day with MLS will be June 14.

Here’s a message from Steve:

What an adventure the past years at Massachusetts Library System have been! I’ve enjoyed working with amazing staff and engaged members and have been lucky to be involved in many exciting initiatives. Thank you to everyone who played a part in our efforts!

It was a difficult decision, but it’s time for me to move on. I’ve accepted a position at Ocean State Libraries and will soon join their talented team in service of Rhode Island libraries. Best wishes to you all
-Steve

Please join me in wishing Steve well on his next adventure. We’ll miss you, Steve!

Thanks,
Sarah Sogigian
Executive Director
