Welcome to the Arkansas Library Association

ArLA has supported Arkansas’ academic, public, school, and special libraries for more than 100 years. In that time, we established a state library commission, began an association publication, established salary guidelines, supported the continuing education of librarians, and protected intellectual freedom.

We hope you join us in further supporting libraries and the library profession.

    Robin Campbell: ArLA November Member Spotlight

    "If you ever need anything from Robin, you can guarantee that you will get it! It will be kind, thoughtful, and enthusiastic. Robin serves on the ArLA Marketing committee. If you see a thorough, well-thought-out post on Facebook it was probably written by Robin. She also does that and so much more for her library's marketing department. Robin works so hard and thoughtfully (did I mention that Robin is super thoughtful?) to make sure the people in her community know where to find important resources inside AND outside of the library walls."
