Letter: Accord with AG allows museum to go forward

To the editor:

I am a member of the Berkshire Museum and am writing to say how happy I am that the museum and the attorney general have reached an agreement that will allow the Berkshire Museum to move forward with plans to shore up its finances and focus on elements of its mission related to science, natural history and experiential learning. I believe the new vision for the museum will serve as an asset to Pittsfield and the children and families who make their homes in Berkshire and surrounding counties.

I'm glad that the discussion has brought so much attention to the plight of small, regional museums and hope that it will lead to the development of thoughtful policies that weigh donor intent against changing communities and changing needs.

Andrea Sholler,
