Welcome to the NEW CPLA Home page! After 37 years as CALTAC, We are now the California Public Library Advocates (CPLA) and include advocacy by all library affiliated groups: Trustees, Commissioners, Friends and Foundations. Please visit us on Facebook! And remember to bookmark this new page.

Our goals are to provide our members resources to be more effective in their roles and responsibilities through education and cooperative effort; to support the California State Library and California Library Association; to advocate legislation to improve public library services throughout the state; and to recognize those providing outstanding service for public libraries.
