CRPLSA regularly participates at professional conferences in the “vendor” arena to express appreciation to local government officials for previous support, to solicit support for future library initiatives, and share the “library story.” In addition to working with our local government partners, CRPLSA actively supports the professional efforts of the Minnesota Library Association through membership, hosting and presenting conference programs, as well as underwriting expenses for the annual conference.
Next up: December 3-4, 2018 Bloomington, MN

Every $1.00 invested in Minnesota Public Libraries returns $4.60 to our communities. We know this is a fact for libraries but what would it look like if it were true for ice cream, dogs, or foot-long sandwiches? So much more than you expected.
CRPLSA released the So Much More Than You Expected media campaign featuring four video vignettes of varying length. Set in everyday locations, the 15- or 30-second video clips depicts the key finding of a recent Return on Investment (ROI) Study conducted by the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
Libraries around the state are free to post the YouTube videos to library websites or share with local media and cable outlets.
