Mission Statement

The Adult Services Interest Group exists to provide a space to share ideas, guidance and support for those working with adults across the demographic, socioeconomic and intellectual spectrum.


Beyond traditional reference service, this group serves as a forum for and actively promotes the view that adults are people, too, needing their own unique slate of services and support as do those that work with them in libraries across the state.



Lead and sponsor programs at CLA which represent and foster the highest standards of service and innovation.


Offer a Spring Fling program, generated by interest group members and of interest to the California library community as a whole.


Host a robust social media presence where ASIG members can exchange ideas and challenges in a supportive environment.
