Welcome to the North Carolina Library Association (NCLA)!  Our purpose is to promote libraries, library and information services, librarianship, intellectual freedom and literacy.

Here are some things we are doing:


Where in the world is NCLA?  We want to know!  Use the hashtag #NCLAOntheMove when traveling, whether you’re at a library event or conference, or just on vacation!  You can take a selfie or something interesting you encounter during your travels.  Caption the photo with the hashtag, where you are and what you are doing! Be sure you tag posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr … wherever you are, take #NCLAOntheMove with you!
