TLA Annual Conference

We welcome all folks, 18 years or older, to volunteer, whether you are new or returning, professional, paraprofessional, or other library enthusiast. ALL ARE WELCOME! Volunteers do not need to work in a library or be TLA members. In fact, if you aren’t a professional librarian, and volunteer for 4 or more hours, you receive an exhibits pass for that day!

Questions?  Contact Elizabeth Meshkoff or Treva Shawn Anderson.
