About the NLLA

The Newfoundland and Labrador Library Association (NLLA) is a group of people who are interested in assuring the excellence of public, school, special, and academic libraries in the province.

The association was established in 1969 by a group of 23 dedicated librarians. We now have over 100 members. Originally the “Newfoundland Library Association”, it was renamed the Newfoundland and Labrador Library Association in 1997. Historical records of the association are available in the Centre for Newfoundland Studies Archives.

The NLLA meets annually in St. John’s in May, and our Library Technicians and Assistants Interest Group meets annually in late fall. The NLLA is one of the twelve library associations which form The Partnership, Canada’s national network of provincial and territorial library associations.
