Welcome to the 2017 MLA Annual Conference! This year’s theme is Radical Librarianship - the power of libraries to provide access to the truth, strengthen our community voices, create opportunity for exploration and innovation, and assist our patrons to build a better future. Libraries have always been radical, but what does Radical Librarianship mean for us today? Join us at the 2017 MLA Annual Conference to help shape that conversation!

Dr. Mary Wilkins Jordan

Central Minnesota Libraries Exchange
Executive Director
Mary has worked in public, special, and academic libraries. Before becoming a librarian she did many things, including skipping school to spend the day hanging out in libraries and reading books. She was, clearly, born to be a librarian. When she tears herself away, she reads books, works on a quilt, and hikes on trails everywhere.
