Membership and involvement in the SLIM Student Chapter does not require membership in the national organization (ALA). However, it is recommended to take advantage of the opportunity to become a member of the American Library Association. A joint membership is available for both KLA and ALA for $38.00.
There are many advantages in joining ALA including a Subscription to American Libraries, the journal of the Association, which provides information about libraries, library work, and current events in the Association. Members also receive 10% on books and promotional items purchased from ALA and also discount on registration fees for Annual Conference and Midwinter Meeting.
Contribute to SCALA:
Since membership in SCALA is free, SCALA relies on ESU’s associated student government and fundraisers as its primary source of income. In addition to fundraisers, SCALA also accepts contributions. If you would like to contribute to SCALA, please email our faculty adviser, Kathie Buckman, or write to the following address:
