Don Leslie, Industry & Government Business Manager


For over 30 years, 3M has been partnering with libraries to help them successfully meet the changing needs of their customers. In addition to providing innovative security, RFID, self-service and PC management solutions, we strive to give back to libraries some of the support they've given us these many years. We do this through our Salute to Schools, 3M/NMRT Professional Development Grant, LAMA Institute and Association sponsorships to name a few.

As a Library Champion, and as a Founding Partner of the "@ your library[R]" campaign, 3M is also committed to helping increase public awareness of the vitality and value of today's libraries globally, and to keeping them up to date on the latest tools for creating their own marketing, public relations and advocacy programs.
