President's Welcome

President's Welcome 


Welcome to Pennsylvania Library Association’s online presence!

Our goal is to provide you with comprehensive and up-to-date information about the Association, its initiatives and issues of interest to all types of libraries and library workers. Highlights include:

  •  Information about membership and its benefits;
  •  Legislative updates to inform and advise your advocacy efforts at the national, state and local levels;
  • A Toolkit describing how to use the PA Forward framework to advance 
      Pennsylvania’s libraries;
  •  Local Chapter officers, meeting dates and networking opportunities;
  •  How to become involved as a member at the state and local levels;
  •  Continuing education opportunities including the annual state conference,
      Chapter workshops and virtual meetings;
  •  Scholarship information;
  •  And much, much more.

This website is also a community platform and, as a member, you are able to participate in conversations and share ideas with your colleagues.

If you believe in libraries and their ability to change and improve the lives of Pennsylvania’s residents and if you are not already a member, please consider joining our community. Membership matters and makes our voice stronger.

It is my honor to serve as your President for 2017. Pennsylvania Library Association is truly a membership organization and I hope that you will speak up and be part of the important conversations we will have during the upcoming year

Carrie Turner
President 2017
