About WLA


The Washington Library Association leads, advocates, educates, and connects.


The Washington Library Association is a leader for Washington libraries. We are a dynamic, inclusive, and diverse community that provides advocacy, professional development, and leadership opportunities while promoting intellectual freedom and innovation.

The people of Washington rely upon libraries to further their education, enhance their skills in the work place, fully function in today’s global society, and enrich and enjoy their daily lives. The Washington Library Association, with a membership of 1504 individuals and 49 institutions, provides the leadership needed to develop, improve, and promote library services to all Washington residents.
