planning committee. *MLA 2023 will take place May 22 – 23 at Sunday River
Resort, and our theme this year is Advocacy in Action. *

Our first confirmed keynote speaker is Deborah Tracie Hall, American
Library Association Executive Director and powerful advocate for libraries.

We would also love to hear from *YOU! *Share your expertise, programs,
experiences, and ideas with your Maine library colleagues.
