ABC is proud to partner with the following organizations
American Library Association - Promoting the highest quality library and information services and public access to information. Founded in 1876 and headquartered in Chicago, the American Library Association—the "voice of America's libraries"—is the largest library association in the world. Its 66,000 members are primarily librarians, but also trustees, publishers and others who support the work of the association. The mission of the ALA is to promote the highest quality library and information services and the profession of librarianship, as well as ensure access to information for all people. ALA invites you to contact your local school, academic or public library to find out how you can help make a difference—whether that's volunteering your time, offering your expertise, joining a local Friends group, reading to children, or donating books and materials.
