About Us

Welcome to the Library

Founded in 1887, the Insurance Library Association of Boston is the leading resource for and provider of literature, information services, and quality professional education for the insurance industry and related interests.

Our collection and services are available at no charge to consumers, including students, and we are happy to help clarify what might sometimes seem to be a confusing maze to anyone not working in the business.

We receive no public funds, and depend upon those in the insurance community and related fields to support us through memberships so that our doors can remain open to all. If you contemplate using us for business purposes, please read more about membership privileges.

The Board of Trustees

In addition to the three full time librarians, our library is also managed by a board of trustees. To find out more information about the library’s board, please click here.
