The Iowa Library Association fosters a community of innovation and advocacy, supporting and strengthening our members to promote libraries as an essential resource for all Iowans.

ILA Vision Statement - Engaging Iowans and building community through Iowa libraries.


ILA Adopts a Library

ILA has adopted the Francisco Oller Library!  ILA's Executive Board approved the motion to partner with ALA's Adopt a Library program. 
"Just as hundreds of libraries helped colleagues in the gulf region after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, we are encouraging libraries, friends of libraries and other organizations to adopt a library in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and other locations in the Caribbean."
