That's A Wrap!

What a turnout! Nearly 150 devoted Friends of the Library came out last week to hear Sally Gardner Reed, director of United for Libraries, speak about best practices to refresh and revitalize Friends groups (among other workshop highlights). That is a new record for MALF’s growing fall series. Members, look for a full feature in the next MALF newsletter.

Our thanks to the Friends at Anoka County Library – Rum River, Austin Public Library, Dakota County Library – Wentworth, and Douglas County Library for your partnership on “Refresh and Revitalize Your Friends Group.” If you would like to partner with MALF to bring a workshop and national caliber speaker to your library sometime in 2017, we’d love to hear from you.
