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.
The MPLA region has a wonderful variety of library types, so conference programming is rich for all of us. I get the chance to mix and mingle and learn with colleagues full of good ideas and a sense of fun. By now, MPLA has provided me professional growth, opportunities to serve, and even grant monies!
