Australian Church Library Association

"Promoting the Christian Faith through Church Libraries"

Members of ACLA

As a member of ACLA you will have access to some useful resources to promote and re-energise your church library, including:

  • Learning about new technologies and ideas you can use to reach out to patrons.
  • A network of experienced ACLA members across Australia who are happy to offer insight and guidance.
  • News and information about church libraries and like-minded organisations in Australia and overseas.
  • Opportunities for networking and informative experiences at Workshops, State Chapter meetings and National General Meetings.
  • A subscription to Off the Shelf, ACLA’s quarterly newsletter publication.

Although not involved with a church library, many members choose to support ACLA’s mission through membership.
