Library Christmas Party
Thursday, December 19, 2019
All Day!

Okay, there won't be a live jazz band but we can play some nice, cheesy music if that's important. What is important, though, is that our event is ALL DAY and features coffee, hot cider and a dizzying array of delectable, sugar-loaded cookies, squares and tarts, all HOMEMADE by the library staff. It's our way of thanking you for using the library over the past year and we'd love to see any MLA members who can drop by that day.

CPD-Save the Dates

Please check here regularly for dates of upcoming MLA-CPD seminars. As well, we we will provide links to some non-MLA CPD seminars that will be held in the London area. For those links, registrations should be placed with the body organizing the event as these are not Middlesex Law Association seminars.
