Advocacy for Florida Libraries
Advocacy efforts by the Florida Library Association include leading the fight for State Aid to Libraries funding for public libraries and intervening in a 2009 lawsuit to support the requirement that library directors be full-time employees. FLA's advocacy includes support for school, college and university libraries as well a multitype library cooperatives and the State Library and Archives.
FLA provides graduate and undergraduate scholarships. Three scholarships are available for those pursing Master's degrees in library and information science: one to Florida State University, one to the University of South Florida and a third, the Minority scholarship, to someone attending either school. Two undergraduate scholarships are also available: one for a student pursing an associate's degree and one for a student pursuing a bachelor's degree.
