As the North Dakota Library Association Membership
Chair, I invite you to join us. Our membership is diverse and includes
librarians, library staff, trustees, and friends, affiliated with all
types and sizes of libraries.
Why should you be a member of NDLA?
Membership is fun and rewarding, it supports the library profession in
our state, and it's a great way to get to
know people from other North Dakota libraries! Our success
on an active, enthusiastic, and sharing membership. It's
your involvement that you and
everyone in the North Dakota Library Association gains.
We have several membership categories available:

staff: $50/year for libraries with up to 3 FTE staff; $100/year for
