ALA's 135th Anniversary
One hundred and thirty five years ago today, 103 men and women assembled at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia for the purpose of discussing the library issues of the day. That meeting resulted in the formation two days later (Oct. 6, 1876) of the American Library Association. I have a modest digital exhibit at my Library History buff website in honor of ALA's 135th anniversary.
