BACKGROUND NOTE

The first meeting of the Nebraska Library Association was held at University Hall at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, on April 22, 1895. There were 15 charter members present at this meeting, and Mrs. Mary L. Jones was elected first president of the organization. The following six meetings were held in Lincoln, but in 1902 the convention was held at the Omaha Public Library, and in 1903, at Fremont. The initial meetings had been held in conjunction with the State Teachers Association, but differing interests prompted the decision in 1902 to hold separate meetings.

Librarians from many of the libraries in the State have served the Association in the capacity of president. Among them were Edith Tobitt, J.I. Wyer, Malcolm Wyer, and Anna Jennings, each of whom held the office for two terms. The early meetings of the association were primarily concerned with library legislation, and in 1901 the group was instrumental in securing the enactment of the law providing for the Nebraska Public Library Commission.

The stated purpose of the Nebraska Library Association, “to promote library interests in the State of Nebraska,” is achieved through an annual meeting, district meetings, and section and committee meetings. In a number of instances, the Nebraska Library Association has met with groups from other states including the Iowa Library Association, the Kansas and Missouri Associations, and similar groups from the Dakotas. In 1930, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, the Dakotas, and Wisconsin met at St. Paul, Wisconsin.
