About WLA Membership

Anyone can be WLA member! You don’t have to work in a library, serve on a library board, or be a part of a Friends of the Library organization. You only need to be interested in libraries and the goals of WLA while adhering to WLA’s values.

Washington’s citizens rely upon libraries to further their education, enhance their skills in the workplace, fully function in today’s global society, and enrich their daily lives. The Washington Library Association, with a membership of over 1,300 individuals and 48 organizations, provides the leadership and support needed to develop, improve, and promote library services to all Washington residents.
