About Us

Colorado Association of Libraries

The Colorado Association of Libraries (CAL) is a volunteer-run unified chapter of the American Library Association.

The Colorado Association of Libraries (CAL) is the common bond, voice, and power for the library community. We are united to advocate for quality library services, support access to information, and foster the professional development of our members.

Through CAL's efforts, Colorado libraries will be essential to the enrichment of all Colorado communities. The Association will be the most powerful advocate for all library issues in the state. As a model association, CAL will be the first choice for leadership, advocacy, and professional development.

CAL members are librarians, library employees, institutions, and corporations drawn from public, school, academic, and special libraries; public library trustees; education administrators; library service providers; library vendors; volunteers; and library supporters.

  • Support Intellectual Freedom

  • Provide Continuing Education Opportunities

  • Pursue Legislative Initiatives
