Maryland libraries are strong, vital and collaborative. The Maryland Library Association is the heart of Marylandís libraries, offering a steady beat of professional training programs, advocacy tools and networking opportunities.

MLA brings people together from across the state to learn, share and grow. Members benefit in a variety of ways, and often tap into different facets of the organization according to their needs.

Taken together, MLA:

  • Enhances your career and professional marketability
  • Provides opportunities to meet and learn from your peers
  • Offers a forum to share your knowledge
  • Provides training often required in the field
  • Effectively motivates a compelling, knowledgeable team to lobby elected officials for library support
