This group is for members of the Manitoba Library Association to share ideas, news, and issues as they relate to the libraries, library workers, and librarianship in Manitoba. You can seek guidance from colleagues, brainstorm solutions to a potential problem, or connect with one another about a new idea or program.

Please encourage your library trustees, and board members to participate as well as all library staff!
