Bylaws with Changes


The Louisiana Library Association condemns racism and injustice in our communities and our nation. By their very definition, libraries are bastions of equitable treatment, fairness, and hope. We are deeply sorrowful over recent events, and we stand firmly against the horrific instances of bigotry and oppression, remembering especially those in our state who have suffered and died at the treacherous hands of misplaced power. We stand with our colleagues and library users in condemnation of racism against Black people and all People of Color. We support you, and we are with you.

Libraries and librarians are essential in an information society. Join our advocacy efforts to educate our community and let your voice be heard!
