About Maureen Ambrosino

I was the chair of YALSA Legislation for 2008-2009, and was given the title of "raging library activist" by School Library Journal for my January 08 article on advocacy. When I'm not emailing legislators and rallying other librarians to email theirs, I am the Youth Services Consultant at Central Massachusetts Regional Library System in Shrewsbury, MA.
