Why Join

TLA exists to serve libraries and librarians in Texas. In fulfilling its mission, TLA also benefits the people of Texas.

Why Join TLA?

Our members say it best:

How can a Texas librarian not support TLA? Everything they do is to make our libraries stronger. They help and fight for every type of library and every type of librarian, whether your title is teacher-librarian, media specialist, or librarian. Education, resources, support – TLA provides it all. We all win with TLA watching over Texas libraries. Jenny Filardo, Middle School Librarian, Presbyterian School in Houston
I am a TLA member because I believe that libraries and access to information are essential for my community and the great state of Texas. Libraries and librarians need our support now more than ever as our rights to free inquiry and access to information are being challenged. I am glad to know that TLA supports and defends those rights with us! Lynda Infante, Faculty Librarian and Assistant Professor, Austin Community College
Keeping my team motivated and connected through the pandemic was a challenge. The TLA members and staff helped reassure me I was not alone. They gave me opportunities to learn from what others were doing around the state, and kept me from burnout.Roosevelt Weeks, Director, Austin Public Library
I am a TLA member because of the association’s commitment to promoting literacy and equal access to information for Texas library patrons.Lisa Hernandez, Alternative High School Librarian, Pharr-San-Juan-Alamo (PSJA) ISD, Elvis J. Ballew College, Career & Technology Academy
