The Church and Synagogue Library Association provides educational guidance in the establishment and maintenance of congregational libraries.
CSLA helps congregational librarians learn from and teach each other. Since 1967, CSLA has been an outstanding source of collegial support for congregational librarians where lifetime friendships are formed through common interests. And in a world where religious tolerance is strained, our unique ability to bring together librarians from different faiths is more important than ever.
Are you wondering where to start with weeding? Facing the daunting task of automating a catalog? Charged with organizing archives? Whether you are new at library work or have 30 years of professional experience, there is something for you in CSLA.
Our members publish guides on librarianship that set the standard for excellence. We provide one-to-one mentoring in all areas of librarianship. We organize conferences that provide solutions to today’s pressing challenges and identify new print and digital resources for your collection.
