Reader's Advisory Roundtable (RART)
Roster | Agendas | Minutes | News | Events | Articles

Purpose: RART is the Readers Advisory Round Table, and is a subunit of the Minnesota Library Association. RART’s goal is to provide a forum for discussion about adult and young adult books, both fiction and non-fiction. Members share information about books and authors from the point of view of reader’s advisory services most frequently in public libraries. There are opportunities to share techniques and expertise in book talking and "on the spot" reader’s advisory.

Every year, RART hosts a retreat, bringing together members of the profession who are interested in improving their reader’s advisory skills, learning more about the world of books, and sharing their experiences. RART also sponsors related sessions at the annual MLA conference.


To join RART, simply select the RART option on your membership application or renewalThis membership is included at no cost as part of your MLA membership. If you’re already a member of MLA and want to join RART now, please contact the office.
