About - In 1989, Capital Area Library Assistants (CALA) was formed as an Interest Group of the Capital District Library Council (CDLC). CALA focuses on issues that face library support staff and represents those working in academic, public, school or special libraries in non-librarian positions. Facilitated by CALA’s Coordinating Committee, the group meets the third Tuesday of each month from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm.
CALA's Goals - CALA’s goals are to enhance communication and interaction between library staff, to distribute information on other organizations specifically designed to benefit library support staff and to facilitate professional development of library support staff.
Membership - Membership is free. By joining CALA, you will receive information about CALA events, workshops, and other activities. New members are always welcome!
