Why attend?

We are thrilled to present the first-ever TLA 2020 Virtual to you. Whether you’re in the Panhandle or in East Texas, in an urban area or a small town, it’s an opportunity to earn more continuing education credits (CEs) than you ever could at one in-person conference. You’ll also be able to view exhibitor sessions and download a tool with links to exhibitor resources.

Best of all, by the time TLA 2020 Virtual launches on April 21-22, we’ll have more than 50 precorded sessions available for on-demand viewing. They’ll be available until May 31. Take a look at our schedule so far.

In addition to featured speakers that include Jason Reynolds, Lisa See and Lois Lowry, we have a wealth of educational sessions aimed at a variety of library types: school, academic, public and special.
