American Libraries is the official news and features magazine of the American Library Association. Published six times per year, along with four additional digital-only supplements, it is distributed to all members of the organization.

Subscriptions to American Libraries are not available to individual non-members, but are available to libraries and other institutions by paid subscription: $45 per year in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, $60/year elsewhere.

A weekly electronic newsletter, American Libraries Direct, has been published since 2006.

Publication began in 1970, as a continuation of the ALA Bulletin, which was launched in 1907. Topics include: news about ALA and the library and information science profession in general, information about conferences, job listings, technology, library architecture, programming, budgeting, intellectual freedom, privacy, and other library issues.
