Register Now For MLA Conference + Library Friends Day!


It's that time again!

Each year, the slow but inevitable creep towards fall brings with it shorter days, cooler temperatures, and an end to those three-day summer weekends. It’s not all bad, though. Fall also heralds the countdown to the Minnesota Library Association conference!

As most of our audience is already undoubtedly aware, the annual MLA Conference is one of the linchpin events in the Minnesota library community’s professional development and networking calendar. This year’s event, slated for October 10-11 in St. Cloud’s River’s Edge Convention Center, promises to be better than ever, with over 60 sessions/panels and 40 exhibitors.

Friends of the Library will be well represented – particularly on Day 2, “Library Friends Day.” We will feature MALF-sponsored panels and activities on our website as the date draws nearer, so stay tuned! Can’t wait? For a sneak peek, click here for a comprehensive MLA Conference itinerary.

Register by September 6 to attend Friday, October 11 for $60. Register after September 6 and pay $75 for workshops, keynote speakers, meals, exhibits, and networking among Friends.
