Individual memberships are available for the following: librarians, library professionals, and library staff from academic, public, school and special libraries; full-time students; retired librarians; vendors; and trustees, supporters, and advocates.
“I belong to TLA so that I can learn from, support, and draw on the passion of all Texas librarians. My library stands on the shoulders of every academic, public and school librarian in the state, and if they don’t get the support they need, my library won’t be able to accomplish its mission. Being active in TLA is my best avenue for supporting my colleagues and helping to achieve a positive future for our great state!”
–Dan Burgard, TLA member since 2011
