Adler 300x219 Mark Adler Running for Shrewsbury Library Trustee Shrewsbury MassachusettsSHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – I’m excited to be running for Trustee of the Shrewsbury Public Library. The election is Tuesday May 6, and I ask for your vote.

We are entering a thrilling time for the library: the renovation and expansion of the building. It’s a new space that will provide fabulous opportunities for the collection, circulation, and programming.

Still, the library is more than just a building. The library is a town service: an excellent resource for all people — young and old — throughout the town. It’s critical for everyone to have access to the library.

Shrewsbury’s library is the second busiest in the county and one of the busiest in the state. The budget comes from town government, but it also has state funding, it maintains trust funds, and it gets donations from generous donors.

Both local and state funding is precarious and the library has been running on its bare minimum for years. Despite the increase in both circulation and library cards, the library budget has stagnated and even decreased. This has led to the staff doing more with less.

We need to do a better job funding our public library, and I will work hard to raise our funding from grants, tax revenue, and private donations.

I currently serve the Town as chair of the Shrewsbury Cultural Council, a Town Meeting member, and member of the Fiscal Study Committee. I am the membership chair of the Friends of the Shrewsbury Public Library. I am the treasurer of the Shrewsbury Education Foundation, having served previously as the treasurer of the Paton PTO.

Thank you.
