Children's and School Librarian's Division (CSLD)

Welcome Message

Join the Children’s and School Librarian’s Division (CSLD) of the Alabama Library Association (ALLA) and help create a brighter future for the children of Alabama.  CSLD plans, implements and manages programs that reach out to children and the library staff that work with children throughout the state.

CSLD’s mission is to find innovative ideas that promote library services to children from our team of school media specialists, public librarians and paralibrarians. This collaboration takes into account children, parents, teachers and all other members of our learning community.

Join us today as we work together to share resources, knowledge and best practices that help us reach our goals.
