Groups & Committees

MLA groups offer the opportunity to work on areas of special interest, network with like-minded colleagues across the state and across library types, and to work towards the betterment of libraries in Maine. Have an impact by participating in an special interest or advocacy group, or on one of the committees that keeps our organization working. 

Chairs of Groups and Committee also serve as voting members of the MLA Board.

Interest Groups

Special interest groups allow those working in similar areas of library service to share ideas, resources, best practices and network. As an MLA member, you are welcome and encouraged to freely participate in as many interest groups as you want!

If you are interested in starting a new Interest Group, contact us to get started! 


MLA Committees engage in advocacy to directly impact Maine Libraries and serve as a vital resource for those working on issues of challenged library materials, censorship, equal access to information resources, or other rights as outlined in the Library Bill of Rights of the American Library Association

Get Involved

We depend upon the many volunteers who give their time and expertise by volunteering on an MLA Interest Group or Committee. Please consider participating! Reach out to for more details.
