Mission Statement

CLA is the community for California libraries.

The Association provides leadership for the development, promotion and improvement of library services, librarianship and the library community.

We help members excel in a fast-changing job market. We're a resource for learning about new ideas and technology, and we actively work to influence legislation affecting libraries and librarians.


Learn more about our Board of Directors, Bylaws, and Standing Rules.


Committees are organized to address issues that affect CLA, its members, and the library community at large.
