Welcome to our first weekly newsletter - Nic News Weekly!

The intent of this newsletter is to touch base with NFLS member library directors on a regular basis - with timely reminders, updates, and news. I hope this will help cut down the number of emails you receive from NFLS staff on a daily basis. So stay tuned for weekly updates!

Feel free to forward this newsletter to staff and branch managers as you see fit, or email me to have someone added to the mailing list.
