Libraries Change Communities Award

Honoring a collaborative effort to promote innovative library-based initiatives involving the community.

The Texas Library Association Libraries Change Communities Award is presented to a collaborative community effort that recognizes positive achievements and promotes outstanding library-based initiatives in Texas. The award recognizes good practice in any innovative library-related effort that involves communities, demonstrates imagination and innovation, and has the potential to be developed and adapted elsewhere.

Community can be defined in the broad or narrow sense depending on the collaborated effort (e.g. school or school districts, state or county agencies). The initiative should affect people’s lives for the better, contribute to equality of access, and impact the end users.

Any TLA member may nominate a deserving library for consideration. Nominations open September 15 and close February 5. All nominations must be submitted through the online form.

Once the nomination is submitted, you will receive a password that allows you to add to, or edit your nomination materials. You will also receive a separate password to provide to people submitting any letters of reference.

Contact Kelly Dibbens at TLA if you have any questions or need assistance.
