ALA Preps for Its 150th Anniversary

“For 150 years, ALA has played a key leadership role in supporting free and unfettered access to information. Our association has advocated for and protected the freedom to read and has battled censorship attempts that are on the rise throughout the country,” said Emily Drabinski, ALA president. “Our anniversary in 2026 is the perfect time to showcase the work of ALA to support librarians throughout the country and the increasingly important role they play in their communities, colleges and schools.” 

ALA’s executive board is planning for the anniversary by creating two member-led committees: The 150th Commemoration Committee, which will develop “events, programs, products, and a public awareness campaign related to the yearlong anniversary,” and the 150th Fundraising Campaign Committee, which “will establish a campaign goal, partner to create campaign strategies, provide opportunities for donor engagement, host events and meet with potential donors.”
