First Fall Saturday: September 9th

10 A.M.-2 P.M.

During a recent MLS workshop I was provided the number of visitors to Massachusetts libraries (2014-statistics) 37,089,488. This is amazing! This flat Massachusetts project will allow children to observe the number of libraries in our state and the connection between each of us as we share our resources. Our Facebook Page will allow libraries to track Flat Massachusetts and view the number of push pins that have been added each week. I encourage participating libraries to take a picture of flat Massachusetts and post to the special Facebook wall. At the end of the summer, I will create an illustration by affixing push pins to the map that represent all libraries across Massachusetts, using embroidery floss I will connect the participating libraries using gold embroidery floss and black embroidery floss will represent the libraries that did not place a push pin on the map.
