How to join PLG


Membership in the Progressive Librarians Guild is open to all individuals and institutions who wish to join. Membership requires renewal annually, and includes a subscription to the Progressive Librarian journal during the active year.

Membership dues are $25 for individuals, $10 for low income, and $40 for an institutional subscription.

The "join now" link below will take you to PLG's online membership portal at Member Planet, which allows you to choose either:

(1) to pay by mail with a check or money order, or
(2) to pay electronically.

Whether you choose to pay by check, money order, or online, you will be prompted by Member Planet to set up an account, which will then require you to provide your mailing address for the journal.


Questions regarding membership

I do not want to pay online. Is there another option?

If you do not wish to pay online, you can still register through the membership management portal button above. Select the "Membership, Paid offline by check" option when prompted to choose a membership level. After completing registration, please make your check out to Progressive Librarians Guild and send it to our mailing address:

Please note: Your membership and subscription to the journal will not be considered active until your payment has been received and processed.

I belong to a local or school chapter. How does that work?

Membership in PLG is separate from membership in a chapter. Chapters determine whether or not to collect additional dues from their members, and are wholly responsible for finances. PLG membership dues are $25/year regular and $10/year student/low income. See here for chapter guidelines.
