Board of Directors

Atla is governed by an elected board of directors, and for the past seven decades, we have built a rich history of excellence in library collections and services, community, collaboration, and innovation. In 2015, the Atla Board launched an updated strategic vision, and in 2019 introduced a new brand system and assumed the name Atla.
