Minnesota’s statewide interlibrary loan service is the envy of the nation, and we’ve never needed it more than we did in 2020. The list below contains just a small sample of the items that brought joy to Minitex staff over the past year. Each item is available via MNLINK (mnlink.org), Minnesota’s online interlibrary loan portal. Minitex salutes the countless libraries and library workers who made interlibrary loan possible despite 2020’s many challenges.

Last Friday, Minnesota Public Radio kicked off the "Minnesota Made Matchup." The contest asks listeners to choose two favorites among 80 places, inventions, and ideas with Minnesota roots. MNLINK is included!

MPR will "pair the top eight in head-to-head contests throughout the member drive starting Wednesday, Feb. 19." There's no time to waste! If every Minnesota library supporter and staff member votes, we're a shoe-in for the final eight. Vote today!
