MLA Library Staff Survey + Conference Registration

As the three grantee case studies above clearly demonstrate, COVID-19 forced library Friends and staff to be nimble, creative and resilient. In point of fact, it would be impossible for any one person alone to pinpoint all the many ways that libraries have gone above and beyond in the last year.

The Minnesota Library Association wants to learn more about these transformations – and in particular, what adaptations from the last year are likely to become permanent fixtures of the Minnesota library landscape. This knowledge will inform the development services and other support our libraries receive from their professional association.

As a means to that end, they are administering a statewide survey of library staff. Please help MLA – and more to the point, your local librarians – by sharing word about this important input opportunity. Staff have until Friday, July 30 to make their voices heard through this online questionnaire, which takes a mere 5-12 minutes to complete.

Speaking of MLA… Early bird registration rates for the 2021 Minnesota Library Association conference – which will be held online October 6-8 – expire at the end of the month. Cost for nonmembers is $175 through July 31, and jumps to $200 after that date. Click here to learn more about registration, keynote speakers, and other conference details as information becomes available.
