Make an Investment In America's Libraries - Become a Library Champion

The Libraries Transform Campaign is a multi-year public education and advocacy campaign sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country to speak loudly and clearly about the value of libraries. The Campaign now supports thousands of libraries across the nation by fostering public awareness on the extensive range of resources and services available at public, school, academic, and special libraries nationwide.

Library Champions make a positive impact on all types of libraries and the lives of their community members every single day.  

Revenue from your annual gift helps every child, young adult or adult who walks through a door at a library or links to their online resources from home or school and provides critical operating support across an array of Libraries Transform Campaign programs such as National Library Week and Library Card Sign-Up Month. 

Corporate and Foundation Library Champion members can enjoy a strategically designed experience created in consultation to meet your company’s specific goals and can comprise selected thank you membership and conference benefits.

In recognition of gifts made to the Libraries Transform Campaign, the following levels will be listed in the ALA Annual Report:

Corporations and Foundations
Library Champion Sustainer: $25,000 and above
Library Champion Investor: $10,000
Library Champion Patron: $7,500
Library Champion Member: $5,000

Today, the Libraries Transform Campaign continues to build upon its incredible public awareness success and encourages the next generation of Library Champions to join them in a call to action and powerfully proclaim the importance of the library in American society.
