United for Libraries Committees

United for Libraries members may serve on a variety of division level committees. The United for Libraries Vice-President/President-Elect selects committee members and chairpersons in mid-May each year, with terms of service July 1-June 30. Committee rosters have been finalized for 2016-2017.

United for Libraries members may access the 2016-2017 roster of United for Libraries committee members (PDF, 92 kb) with contact information. For more information about each committee, please click on the links below:

United for Libraries group members are not ALA members, and therefore cannot serve on committees. If you are currently an United for Libraries group member and wish to purchase ALA/United for Libraries membership, please call (800) 545-2433, ext. 2161, or email united@ala.org.
