Discounted membership lists

Rental of ALA membership lists

Corporate Members receive a 15% discount on the rental of ALA membership mailing lists.

The American Library Association grants permission to outside organizations, institutions, or individuals, to use its membership lists. Such permission is for rental only. The lists are not sold, and they may not be duplicated.

Available lists

ALA offers Membership Lists that include Personal and Organizational Members active in special interest Divisions, Sections, and Round Tables. ALA Membership Lists also include foreign and Canadian addresses.

Requests should be made in writing and can be mailed or faxed, accompanied by a sample or facsimile of the piece to be mailed.
