Constitution and History of MCSMA


Morris County School Library Association was founded in 1958, but the earliest surviving minutes date to the March 25, 1964 meeting held at Dover High School. Our earliest membership list dates back to 1965. Dues in 1965 were $2.00 and were raised to $5.00 in the late 1970's. The first edition of News and Views was published in November, 1978. It was edited by Bea Stone. The early history of our organization was compiled by Dora Stolfi, but unfortunately this material was lost after her death in 1979.

Many thanks to Barbara Scanlan who compiled this information.
