The WLA School Library Division (previously known as the Washington Library Media Association) provides networking opportunities and professional support for teacher-librarians and library paraprofessionals, administrators, teachers and parents. Together we work to ensure that Washington's students are effective users and producers of ideas and information by providing:

  • support for information and technology literacy instruction
  • reading advocacy for lifelong learning and enrichment
  • equitable access to information resources and services

    • Washington School Library Advocacy Toolkit

      These documents and ideas are intended to help Washington school libraries advocate for their positions and collections when those are threatened.  Although leaders from WLA, WLA School Library Division, ALA and AASL will work with local librarians to respond to job cuts and loss of funding, we believe the greatest impact comes from local librarians, parents, students, another community members leading the effort.
