Truly, welcome to the Public Libraries Division! This is an exciting time for us. WLA’s restructure is in place. The Public Libraries Division is brand new and we get to decide together what the Division will look like and what we want to get out of it.

First among the tasks ahead is a vision statement. Let’s start by considering and answering some questions:

  • What is ahead for public libraries?
  • What matters to us? 
  • What inspires us? 
  • What else should be a part of our vision and guiding principles?

I’d love to hear from you. Please email me at with your thoughts and ideas.

We, the staff who are the heart of public libraries, have the opportunity to build the type of organization we want to be a part of. Please join the conversation about the bright future for the Public Libraries Division.

I hope to see you at the upcoming conference!

Aileen Luppert
Interim Chair of the Public Library Division
