Schedule At-a-Glance

We’re excited to bring TLA 2021 to you! We’re planning for special author events, lots of social networking with peers and experts, educational programming taught by your fellow librarians and leaders in the field, a vibrant exhibit hall, and many opportunities for you to learn, grow and enjoy time with one another.

In addition to live general sessions each day, TLA 2021 includes outstanding education sessions for all types of libraries. There are multiple, concurrent prerecorded education programs, and many will include a live chat session with speaker(s).

TLA 2021  (originally scheduled for April 20-23 in San Antonio) will be a fully virtual event held April 22 – 24. Learn more about the decision to go virtual here.

Visit with exhibitors as you discover the latest books, products and services offered in the Exhibit Hall. Connect with colleagues and make new connections in live chat rooms which are open during show hours.

Registration is open!
