Fall District Meetings
Each fall, TLA Districts will hold a meeting for their members and their staff/guests in that specific district which focus on trends and relevant information to TLA members to obtain professional development and network with their peers in their region. Each gathering provides an opportunity for librarians and support staff to learn from trainers, authors, and one another on how to improve their services to their city, school, or university. This is a great way to target a specific geographical area of Texas. Check back for more information on District Meetings for 2021.
