Montana Library Association

The Montana Library Association (MLA) offers camaraderie, guidance, and support. MLA is a statewide professional organization dedicated to supporting libraries, trustees and library staff in Montana. The group lobbies for legislative change, provides continuing education, promotes library interests and development, and offers its members a chance to network with other library staff. Throughout the year MLA hosts retreats and an annual conference where members can meet and learn more about what is happening in libraries.

MLA is a membership organization which represents all types of libraries, public library trustees, and members of Friends organizations within its divisions and interest groups. MLA standing committees work on a variety of library-related issues including government affairs, intellectual freedom, marketing, and professional development.
