In the Service of Freemasonry

We are librarians, museum professionals, and lovers of Freemasonry who are dedicated to preserving its history.

We work on preserving the history of Freemasonry in various ways. MLMA provides both online resources and a yearly in-person meeting to learn from each other.

Whether you’re a professional in a museum or library, a Masonic collector, interested in Masonic research, or any other aspect of Freemasonry, we welcome you to join us.
