Connections are at the heart of learning and libraries are at the heart of those connections. Libraries are where people, young and old, connect to ideas, people and insights. These connections inspire new ideas, which lead to innovation, which ultimately impacts our community and our world. TLA2019 will:

  • Empower library professionals at every level to make informed decisions based on current research and best practices.
  • Strengthen self-knowledge and awareness in order to mindfully engage in civil discourse, network, and assume leadership roles.
  • Broaden immediate community impact with specific, meaningful, hands-on ideas across all library types.
  • Serve diverse communities by providing equitable resources and cultivating cultural competencies.

Join us at the Austin Convention Center for the largest state library association conference in the country, an active marketplace of ideas, library services, and educational resources.
