Become a PLA Partner

Support PLA and the Librarians We Serve

Thank you to our current PLA Partners!

PLA Partners are leading companies and organizations that make a commitment to support the work of the Public Library Association (PLA) and the nearly 9,000 members we serve. Through PLA, the largest and most recognizable organization dedicated specifically to the needs of public libraries, you will:

  • Build and reinforce brand recognition for your company and its products among thousands of PLA members who are decision makers at their libraries.
  • Enhance your visibility to PLA members at key PLA events including the highly regarded PLA Conference and on the PLA website.
  • Demonstrate your organization's support for the library community and your commitment to quality PLA educational programs

PLA Partners enable PLA to continue providing members and other librarians with high-quality, low-cost educational workshops, programs, and conferences, as well as special services and advocacy efforts that improve public libraries for everyone. PLA Partners help underwrite all PLA events, either directly or indirectly. Without your support, much of what PLA offers its members would not be possible.
