Welcome to the website of the Wichita Area Library Association (WALA). WALA is dedicated to supporting libraries and library employees in the Wichita area and works to improve library services and access for the Wichita area community of library users.

This website provides project and organizational information about WALA, an organization of library professionals started in 1988 in Wichita, Kansas. WALA holds monthly meetings to plan the association's events and to discuss ways of improving library services and networking among area library professionals and supporters. WALA invites all interested Wichita area librarians, library employees and library supporters to contribute to the association's professional endeavors, social activities and special projects to assist area libraries. Our newsletter, WALA News, is archived at this site.
