Support for You and Your Library

Your membership supports SCLA’s aggressive and productive efforts in the state and nationally to assure that South Carolina’s libraries are well-funded and maintain their national standing as the very best. 

We are a state chapter of the American Library Association (ALA) and an affiliate of the Southeastern Library Association (SELA).  The association is made of librarians from all around our state South Carolina dedicated to providing innovative services and promoting libraries and intellectual freedom to all our citizens including the public, as well as those in higher education and in our schools.
