Description: 

The American Library Association (ALA) is the oldest and largest library association in the world, providing association information, news, events, and advocacy resources for members, librarians, and library users. Founded on October 6, 1876 during the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, the mission of ALA is to provide leadership for the development, promotion, and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all. Affiliate organizations of the American Library Association are groups having purpose or interests similar to those of the Association. Some of these societies meet annually at the time and place of ALA meetings. ALA recommends membership also in these organizations to those of its members for whom such connection is appropriate.
