Program Planners Section
To champion and advance the practice of Program Planning statewide by means of, but not limited to: providing educational opportunities and resources to libraries, librarians, and all library workers; creating a cohesive statewide database of shared programming resources, tools, and policies; sharing best practices for in-library, out of library, and virtual events; and finding creative ways to connect the broadest range of community members with our library programs and services.

Thank you to all the LIS students who applied for MLA PPS sponsorship. The PPS is still accepting applications to the MLA PPS:Up, Close and Personal program from BIPOC students.
MLA Program Planners Section is proud to launch a new initiative called MLA PPS: Up, Close and Personal. Our vision is to ensure that the current LIS students have the opportunity to engage with MLA and Program Planners Section, to learn, and network with current LIS students and professionals, and begin their journeys as professional librarians.
