The Mountain Plains Library Association (MPLA) is a twelve state association of librarians, library paraprofessionals and friends of libraries in Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming. Its purpose is to promote the development of librarians and libraries by providing significant educational and networking opportunities.
MPLA is a community of librarians, who live in mountain/plains communities and are simply a community of the most amazing people. Although I am retired, I remain active in the association because I am unwilling to give up being with these people.
The February - March 2015 issue of the MPLA Newsletter is available. This issue features a report on the recent retirement of longtime MPLA member and former President, Jerry Kaup, MPLA member pets, Leadership Institute Alum interviews and so much more!
