About MALT

The Manitoba Association of Library Technicians (MALT) was established in 1971 as a non-profit organization with the objectives to promote and advance the role of library technicians in Manitoba, and to respond to issues that relate to the library community as a whole. MALT provides the following:

  1. Professional development and continuing education programs
  2. Networking opportunities
  3. Awards for Library Technician of the Year, Support Staff of the Year, Rising Star and Red River College Student Awards
  4. Support for student education and entry into the field
  5. Planning and programming for the Manitoba Libraries Conference
  6. Quarterly newsletter
  7. Online job board

Manitoba’s library community has a rich heritage of diversity and has, over generations, created a vibrant collection of advocates, leaders and volunteers. But the library community thrives because of its connections, not by its collections. MALT plays an integral role in strengthening the ties between the various library employees and interest groups in this province. Collaborating with other library associations and listening to Library Technicians and support workers, whether or not they are MALT members, will help us to remain responsive and relevant for the next 40 years.
