In fact, MALF is extending the deadline on its 2016 scholarship for first-time participants. Any resident of Minnesota is eligible to apply for this one-time $500 stipend, provided they are affiliated with a Friends of the Library group that is a member of MALF (or are themselves an Individual-level member).

If 2016 is the year you take the leap, fill out this form and mail with an attached cover letter to: Minnesota Assoc. of Library Friends, 325 Cedar St., Ste. 555, St. Paul, MN, 55101. You may also mail the same to us, at info@mnlibraryfriends.org. Cover letter should address your background as a Friend of the Library, your aspirations as a library supporter, and your reasons for wishing to attend NLLD. Apply by Dec. 21, 2015 (extended: Jan. 6, 2016).

Minnesota attendees will receive an in-depth briefing on library legislation before getting the opportunity to meet in person with members of our own congressional delegation.
