Important Changes to the Membership Calendar

Announcement from the MALF Board of Directors.

In the interest of more effectively offering services to Friends of the Libraries, MALF has changed to a membership year equal to the calendar year. (Previously, the membership year for each member began on the date payment was made.) 

Note that, as we transition, every individual or group signing up or renewing after September 1, 2012 will be given membership for the rest of 2012, as well as for all of 2013

In December 2012, all members who are not members for 2013 will be asked to renew for calendar year 2013.  Because the MALF Board does not wish to disadvantage its current valued members, anyone who has a question or concern about the new membership year or the renewal process is encouraged to call the MALF Treasurer, Ed Fagerlund (651-276-3191).

Annual membership dues will remain unchanged.

  • Individual MALF member -  $10
  • Friends of Library group - $25
  • Library or other group - $25
  • Patron - $50
  • Sponsor - $100
  • Sustaining - $250+

Join now and save up to $150 on your registration for “Friends Day” of the 2012 MLA Conference

Thursday, October 4 is Friends Day at the annual Minnesota Library Association (MLA) conference in Saint Paul. Admission is $225 for non-members and $160 for MLA members - but only $75 for Library Friends or Trustees. Thus, your $10 MALF membership can save you a considerable sum.

MALF raison d’être: MALF works with its Individual and Group Members to support the work of Library Friends around Minnesota and to provide a strong voice for their work.
