Reminder: Stand Up for Standout Friends 2022

Since our last e-newsletter just two weeks ago, Friends of the Library have bankrolled a space camp scholarship fund, kickstarted a first-of-its-kind manga book club, and even coordinated puppetry workshops. Those are just a few especially colorful examples of the many initiatives Friends are responsible for, but enough to show that there is simply no pigeonholing what volunteers can do in support of their library.

In recognition and celebration of that fact, MALF proudly hosts our annual Stand Up for Standout Friends recognition program. Now in its seventh year, this initiative has proven one of our association’s most popular membership perks.

Each member group can submit one name per year. Whether you’ve nominated someone every cycle to date, or are new to the fold, we want to hear from you! 

Perks include: a matted certificate of recognition from MALF; signed and personalized book from a chart-topping Minnesota author (details TBA); commendation letter to the mayor and county commissioner in each recipient’s hometown; and inclusion in a special video tribute that will be shared with libraries and their supporters across the state.


Click here to access the nomination form, and visit our website for more details. Remember to submit the e-form and supporting materials to MALF by Friday, July 22.
