Voucher Program Forms

This voucher is valid for any library training that is relevant to your library and is helpful to your staff. After the staff member has attended training, print the voucher, completely fill out one or both vouchers (please note that the voucher needs to indicate to whom the check is to be made). Include proof of attendance for the training and the amount spent. Send all that to Director Anita Carroll (via mail, email scan or fax.) MVL will send a reimbursment check to the library (or person indicated). Please note that the vouchers can only be reimbursed to the amount of the training (meaning if it cost $30, you'll only be reimbursed $30). Also, please note that you cannot use more than 2 vouchers per year and they are not transferrable between member libraries. Please forward additional questions to: Anita Carroll, Library Director, Middletown Public Library, 125 South Broad Street, Middletown, Ohio 45044.

Thorndike Press® Large Print Books

Sherry Cookson of Thorndike Press is giving us the same discount structure that she has offered to the other regionals in the state. MVL discount includes 20% off individual titles and free shipping. Gale and Thorndike used to require a minimum purchase of 100 titles but that is apparently not the case any longer and that's why Sherry is reaching out to smaller libraries. Until full details are available, please call Sherry directly (contact info below) with questions.
