In 1853, conference was held in New York City with the intent of forming a permanent organization. The conference was attended by 80 men. Charles Jewett (Smithsonian Institution) was elected president. Seth Hastings Grant (New York Mercentile Library) was elected secretary. A committee was appointed to organize a second meeting in 1854. That meeting was not held.
Founded on October 6, 1876 during the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, the American Library Association was created to provide leadership for the development, promotion, and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all. Our current strategic plan, ALA Ahead to 2010, calls for continued work in the areas of Advocacy and Value of the Profession, Education, Public Policy and Standards, Building the Profession, Membership and Organizational Excellence.
