Who We Are

Founded in 1901, the Pennsylvania Library Association (PaLA) is the state's oldest and most diverse professional library organization serving libraries, library employees, library trustees, and Friends of the Library groups.

PaLA represents more than 1,500 personal, institutional, and commercial members affiliated with public, academic, special, and school libraries throughout the Commonwealth. The association represents the profession in Harrisburg and provides opportunities for professional growth, leadership development, and continuing education for librarians.

Who Makes Things Happen

PaLA operates with a small staff and a wide range of volunteer members who serve on our board, on committees, in local chapters, as part of divisions and round tables. Our Organizational Chart (PDF), updated in 2011, shows how the staff and volunteers carry out the mission and goals of PaLA.

PaLA relies on staff and volunteers working together!
