Connecting and sharpening Charlotte area library professionals since 1969.



A Special Statement from Metrolina Library Association's Executive Board - August 22, 2017

The Metrolina Library Association’s Executive Board reaffirms the values emphasized in our mission statement: awareness, cooperation, social interaction, continuing education, and sharing. We use these values to lead by example in our respective communities and stay committed to preserving our libraries as safe spaces and places of welcome. Our spaces and resources allow us and our users endless possibilities to foster curiosity, literacy, learning, inclusion, diversity, equality, and civil dialogue. Now, more than ever, librarians must safeguard these values to ensure libraries remain dynamic places devoted to education, intellectual freedom, equal access, and opportunity for all. We are stronger and better when we work together to achieve our common goals which will, ultimately, lead to a healthier democracy.
