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, for me, has been a great way to get connected in the library community in our region. I have had many opportunities; the Leadership Institute of 2014 as one of my highlights! I have been able to grow professionally, serve libraries and library staffs, and make a difference in my state.
