Award Winners Honored at Annual Conference

At the Louisiana Library Association Annual Conference on March 11, librarians and support staff received awards for their contributions to librarianship. See a full list of award recipients here.


A Message on Behalf of LLA

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.

A Message Regarding Censorship

The Louisiana Library Association denounces censorship of any kind, particularly in libraries. The LLA Code of Ethics, adopted by the membership in 1981 and located in the LLA Manual, makes clear our stance: Librarians must resist all efforts by groups or individuals to censor library materials. The American Library Association also condemns censorship and clearly states through the Library Bill of Rights that restricting access to library materials is a form of censorship, stating that "Attempts to restrict access to library materials violates the basic tenets of the Library Bill of Rights". Censorship always has been and always will be antithetical to librarianship. We stand with our colleagues and library users in fighting censorship in all its forms in Louisiana libraries.
