Queensland Public Libraries Association is a powerful network of public libraries.
QPLA is an independent body made up of members from Queensland library services. QPLA works with Australian Public Library Alliance, State Library of Queensland and other national bodies to ensure public libraries grow and develop and remain anchored in the communities they serve.
QPLA hosts professional developments events and a biennial conference providing access to high-quality learning and networking experiences.
All Queensland Rural and Independent Library services are invited to join QPLA to enjoy the benefits of a strong network base stretching across Queensland.
