Outreach Services Interest Group

Founded in 2008, the Outreach Services Interest Group is open to all MLA members interested in outreach services including, but not limited to, under-served populations in Maryland.

Our mission is to:

  • develop and maintain a network of public library staff responsible for outreach services (mobile or otherwise) within the state of Maryland
  • provide a means to exchange ideas relevant to outreach services
  • meet to view and discuss the various types of outreach services provided by each library system
  • encourage every library system to evaluate current programs and consider new programs that could expand their outreach services
  • promote the unique outreach programs of each system.
