Two times during the school year BAISL members gather to share information, network, and participate in workshops. (Events)

Professional Development Grants

BAISL awards grants to members for the purpose of professional development. (Professional Development Grant)

Consortium Pricing

A committee of dedicated members periodically crafts documents
of value and interest to our community. (Publications)

Library Jobs

Whether you're looking for a position, or are looking to hire in your
library, we post all levels of jobs for our members. (Job Postings)
