Welcome from the President
Welcome to the Federal and Armed Forces Libraries Roundtable (FAFLRT)!
Federal and Armed Forces Libraries represent a wide variety of library types: research, law, school, and public. Librarians working for the Federal government have opportunities that span the library field: from direct services to the public to in-depth research support for America’s military and civilian services.
FAFLRT members work all over the world and have long, distinguished careers in public service. Our members are some of the best librarians in the business and the Federal and Armed Forces Libraries Round Table is their place for networking, communication, and professional development.
Membership for retired federal librarians is free, and library students enjoy free membership for the first two years. Regular membership is only $15 per year.
The Round Table has developed a successful series of programs to inform new and incoming library professionals about careers in federal libraries, and to assist established Federal librarians grow their careers. FAFLRT also sponsors awards and recognition for outstanding Federal librarians.
FAFLRT members want all of ALA to benefit from our work. If you want to get involved and contribute to our community, let FAFLRT know. We are always looking for volunteers for our many committees.
Feel free to send your comments and suggestions to FAFLRT using our online feedback form. Your ideas are always welcome!
