Welcome to Our Newest NNLM MCR Members!

We’re happy to report a grand total of 27 institutions have joined as members in the MidContinental Region during the last year and a half. We thought it was time to acknowledge these newest members. New members included 12 public libraries, seven K-12 schools, two academic libraries, and one hospital library. Five new members fall in the “other” category. These institutions included two public health departments, two health education centers, and one educational service unit. One of the academic institutions also began participation in DOCLINE when they joined the NN/LM.
