The Los Angeles School Library Association (LASLA) was established in 1914 as one of the earliest professional organizations dedicated to school librarianship in the United States. Its founding members held librarian positions with the Los Angeles City School District and helped form the California School Library Association. The collection predominantly consists of meeting materials and correspondence outlining LASLA's activities from 1915-1998.
The Los Angeles School Library Association (LASLA) was established in 1914 as the Association of City School Librarians. It was created by the librarians of the Los Angeles city school system, including Ella Morgan, California's first school librarian. Predating the American Library Association's School Library Section as well as the California School Library Association, LASLA has inspired the formation of other professional organizations dedicated to excellence in school librarianship.
