PLG Chapter Guidelines

PLG allows and encourages the establishment of local, regional and student chapters.

To establish a chapter, a minimum of three library workers or library school students must submit a letter of intent, along with:

  • Completed and signed PLG membership forms from each chapter member (at least three)
  • The name and address of the chapter's contact person
  • An initial dues payment via check or money order payable to PLG

PLG membership dues are $20/year regular and $10/year student/low income. In establishing a chapter, 50% of the chapter members' dues are sent to PLG, 50% stay with the chapter. Dues are mailed to:

Progressive Librarians Guild
MLIS Program
St. Catherine University
2004 Randolph Avenue #4125
St. Paul, MN 55105

It is important that we receive a completed membership form and 50% of the membership dues from each member of your chapter, so that we may add them to our email list and the Progressive Librarian subscription list.

Chapters agree to PLG's statement of purpose and commitment, and operate within the spirit of socially responsible activist librarianship that PLG strives to embody.

Chapters advance the program of PLG by making it concrete in local activities, by contributing to PLG's national efforts, and by working with and through PLG as a whole.
