Student membership

Children are the future, and as a children's librarian, YOU are directly involved in shaping that future!  With around 600 student members and 4,000 professional members, the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) is your outlet for growing professionally, developing a network, and learning from your peers.

Student members get all of the benefits of professional ALSC membership but for a fraction of the cost.  Student members pay only $20 a year, in addition to their ALA student membership.  To learn more about the benefits of ALSC membership or to become a member, visit our membership page. Once you're a member, you can also find out ways to get involved with the division and to grow your career!

Starting in 2015, these sessions will be held twice a year.
