Who We Are

MALF Works with:

  • Friends of the Library groups and individuals who support their local libraries
  • Minnesota Department of Education
  • Minnesota Library Association and its division of Library Trustees and Advocates
  • United for Libraries, a division of the American Library Association
  • Directors and staff of all library types in Minnesota

MALF Believes:

  • That the free exchange of ideas between like minded groups creates a rich environment for creative projects and successful work.

  • That citizens in any community can have an important and immediate impact on the success of their library.

  • That Minnesotans care about their community libraries and are willing to take action to support them.
  • That Friends of the Library groups are more than the sum of their parts; that great things are achieved when people get behind something they care about.
