The day-to-day work of the archives is done entirely by volunteers: our board of directors, archivist, inventory assistants, oral history interviewers, researchers, newsletter and office administrators, event coordinators, grant writers, bookkeepers, and most of our tech support, We are deeply grateful for the many, many hours our volunteers dedicate to BALA that allow us to not only survive but thrive.


With the recent gift of a home for BALA we will have:

  • all our collections in one place

  • a large comfortable area to process and inventory our donated materials

  • our collections and oral history interviews available to be viewed by the public

  • a cozy library to browse our many books and journals

  • room for small exhibits, meetings and events

With our move into a physical space, our expenses will be much higher. Please consider donating to BALA to help us maintain the property and support the expansion of our work further into the community.
