American Library Association

 Its mission is “to provide leadership for the development, promotion, and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.” Libraries bring you the world.  Did you know there are more than 117,000 libraries in the United States?  In addition to public libraries in almost every community, there are thousands of libraries in schools, colleges and universities, hospitals, law firms, businesses, the armed forces and more! Because libraries offer free access to all, they bring opportunity to all.  And the greatest resources in each of these libraries are the librarians and library workers. Almost 400,000 people make libraries work for you every day.  You’ll find the right answer @ your library! You will find a variety of resources created by librarians and ALA staff to educate, inform and entertain children, teens, adults and families
