Our Mission

The Vermont Library Association (VLA) is an educational organization working to develop, promote, and improve library and information services and librarianship in the state of Vermont.

Congratulations to Scott Murphy & Tom McMurdo!

“The VLA leadership would like to congratulate Scott Murphy and Tom McMurdo on their respective appointments as State Librarian and Assistant State Librarian. It has been exciting to see the work they both have already done reinvigorating the Department of Libraries. This bodes well for the future growth and strength of all Vermont libraries. We also appreciate the support they offer to the VLA and look forward to working together more.”

Libraries champion democratic access to accurate information and are welcoming spaces that bring people together around ideas. The VLA supports and enhances this work by providing opportunities for librarians, Trustees, and Friends from all types of Vermont libraries to collaborate and learn from each other and advocate for libraries.
