Minnesota library leaders throughout history have transformed the library landscape in our state. From the early days of the Twin City Library Club to the creation of regional public library systems, multitype library systems, Minitex, and other statewide initiatives and collaborations, our libraries and communities have benefited from forward-thinking, energetic and driven library staff. We can be proud of our robust library community that supports the needs of Minnesota residents. We hope to inspire and demonstrate that any library staff person can be a leader, as we will highlight the people in libraries who helped envision, shape, and make our library systems what they are today.
