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.

    The Arkansas Library Association (ArLA) is now accepting proposals for programs and poster sessions for our Annual Conference to be held in Fort Smith, AR, October 14-16, 2022. The deadline for submissions is June 13, 2022 at Noon (12:00 p.m. CDT).

    Information about submitting a proposal is available on the ArLA website:  

    In addition to submitting program or poster proposals, ArLA Committees and Communities of Interest are also invited to host meetings during the annual conference. All requests for meetings should be submitted using the Program Event Form so that the Program Subcommittee can reserve your meeting time and space in the Conference Program. 

    Don't wait until the last minute to get those ideas flowing and proposals submitted. It's hard to believe that it will be the first time in three years that we have all been together as an Association, so I know there are a lot of good ideas out there that just need to be shared!
