A great way to socialize with other MLA members is via Facebook.
Many of you have expressed interest in regional opportunities to network and socialize with other librarians. “Librarians Who Lunch”, a concept that got rolling in late 2009, is about librarians of all types getting together to eat, imbibe, and socialize. No agenda (and no MLA membership required) -just excellent opportunities for you to chat about all things Library Land!
