PHILADELPHIA – As part of the recent American Library Association (ALA) election, the majority of voting members of the Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations (ALTAFF) voted to change the organization’s title to “United for Libraries: the Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations.”
The name change will become official on Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2012. In the coming months, the new “United for Libraries” name and logo will be featured on the organization’s website and materials. United for Libraries will continue to provide its members, which include friends of the library, trustees, foundations and library advocates, with the best possible specialized resources that will empower them to support and advocate for their libraries.
