Stick with the library market leader
At the center of this vital industry—with 122,000 libraries in the United States alone—is the American Library Association, the oldest and largest library association in the world. Our 63,000 members represent the most active and engaged librarians in the profession, decision-makers, and key administrators. Throughout the year, our members and their staffs rely on ALA print and electronic publications to stay on top of what’s important, what’s new, and what’s coming down the road.

According to the last Book Industry Study Group study, libraries purchase more than $5 billion dollars worth of books and materials each year. Plus, they purchase a substantial amount of equipment, supplies, technology, and services too. You can learn much more about the library market by visiting the ALA Library Facts web pages.
