MLA 2020 Virtual Special Programming and Events

Fun Throughout the Conference

Just ask MLA President-elect Kelly Richards and he’ll tell you, one of the best parts of attending the MLA conference is catching-up in the hallway and chatting with old friends. Sometimes you learn more there than you do in the sessions themselves. The conference volunteers are hard at work putting together fun ideas for networking, gamification, and other ways to engage with each other even if the hallways are virtual this year. Stay tuned before and during the conference for fun ways to engage and interact.

Michigan Library Awards

The Michigan Library Awards is the Michigan library community's very own version of the Academy Awards, the Emmys, the Grammys, and the Tonys!

Co-hosted by the Michigan Library Association, Michigan Association for Media in Education (MAME) and the Michigan Academic Library Association (MiALA), the Michigan Library Awards Virtual Gala will celebrate Michigan's libraries and library staff.

Join us as we celebrate the accomplishments, dedication and service of outstanding libraries, library staff, trustees and supporters at the can't-miss virtual event for celebrating excellence in the Michigan library community.
