ALA Mail List Rental

Available lists

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

Rental of ALA membership 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.

Ordering information

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

ALA reserves the right to examine the mailing piece, and to refuse the use of the lists if the usage seems, for any reason, to be undesirable.

Names and addresses are available in the following formats:

  • Avery Laser Labels (2-up, peel-off)
  • E-mail "attachment” (Excel file)

Lists are run in Zip Code sequence. Specific states may be requested and membership lists can be merged and purged.

All orders are shipped via United Parcel Service, 3-day select, unless otherwise requested. Shipping charges will be added to all orders.

All work is normally completed within 10 working days after receipt of order.

We do not provide email addresses or telephone numbers and offer no broker's commission or discounts.
