ARSL Supporters Alliance

Helping Libraries Do More, With More


The ARSL Supporters Alliance is an opportunity for corporate and nonprofit organizations to support our Association in its mission to elevate the impact of libraries in the rural and small communities. By becoming a member of the Alliance you can help ensure the strength and vitality of those communities for generations to come.

Join the Alliance!

Your annual contribution to the ARSL Supporters Alliance will help rural and small libraries do more with more, not less. Initiatives include:

  • Low- or no-cost professional development opportunities that ensure that all library workers have the skills they need to serve their patrons at the highest levels of professionalism.
  • Advocacy tools designed to meet the unique needs of rural communities and help our libraries cultivate deeper, more meaningful relationships with their local leadership.
  • Targeted grants and scholarship programs that provide much-needed financial support with minimal red tape or hoops to jump through, freeing up libraries’ time to focus on maximizing the impact of their work for the people who matter most.

Members of the Alliance will receive a strategically designed benefits package as part of your membership to help you build brand recognition and trust as a valued ARSL partner. Each of our three support tiers adds additional opportunities for year-round brand visibility and interaction with the more than 2,500 members of ARSL nationwide. You will also receive increased visibility and networking opportunities at our annual conference, which draws both ARSL members and nonmembers and is the highlight of the conference season for rural and small libraries.
