A special “popup” mini-Store will operate near the Registration area on Friday, January 25 from 10:30 am – 2:30 pm. Remember to stop by early to get your pick of conference t-shirts—they sell out fast!

ALA Graphics will feature a selection of posters, bookmarks, and gifts, plus special conference-only items not available in our catalog. Shop the newest posters and bookmarks including Milo Ventimiglia, Constance Wu, Berrybrook Middle School, Mo Willems’ Unlimited Squirrels, Research Skills, and more!

Prepare for National Library Week April 7 - 13 with a new poster, mini poster, and bookmark highlighting the value of libraries and librarians in strong communities. Thank your staff on National Library Worker’s Day (April 9, 2019) with new Libraries Work products.

ALA Publishing is excited to offer several new titles hot off the press, such as “Be Opportunity-Minded: Start Growing Your Career Now,” by Caitlin Williams, Resources for Readers pamphlets for patrons, “Project Management in Libraries: On Time, On Budget, On Target,” by Carly Wiggins Searcy, the second edition of “Building Digital Libraries,” by Kyle Banerjee and Terry Reese, Jr., and “Records, Information and Data: Exploring the Role of Record-Keeping in an Information Culture,” by Geoffrey Yeo. Remember that you can find titles from ALA Editions, ALA Neal-Schuman, Facet Publishing, UK, and the ALA Divisions in the ALA Store, and also get free shipping on all book orders placed in the ALA Store (posters, bookmarks, and other gift-type items are not eligible for this offer).

And stop by the ALA Store before Sunday on noon to enter a raffle drawing for a free ALA book! Ten winners will be chosen at random and contacted Sunday afternoon to collect their prize.

Prices at the ALA Store automatically reflect the ALA Member discount, so there’s no need to dig out your member number. And remember that every dollar you spend at the ALA Store helps support library advocacy, awareness, and other key programs and initiatives!
