All libraries in Alaska are considered General Members of the Alaska Library Network. General membership allows libraries to use the products and services available on the ALN web page and any news and information posted there. General membership does not include voting rights.
Voting Members are granted all benefits of General membership but can participate in additional programs such as any discount group purchasing programs. In addition, Voting Members have the ability to vote and to be nominated to the board of directors. Being a Voting Member or participating as a Board Director means having a say in the direction of the Alaska Library Network.
Please complete the appropriate membership application form and send in with payment to the Alaska Library Network at the address on the form.
Individual library membership dues are determined from annual operating budgets. School district membership dues are determined from the total library budgets of the schools in the district (not to exceed $500).
There are two cycles for membership: January 1 through December 31 and July 1 through June 30.
Charter Members are those libraries who paid at or above their membership dues level by December 31, 2008 to provide initial support for the Alaska Library Network. Charter membership has no benefits but comes with the satisfaction of providing support when it was most needed as well as the sincere gratitude of the Board of Directors.
