Join TLA

Texas Library Connection

The Texas Library Connection (TLC) listserv is open to anyone interested in joining. Participants do not have to be TLA members, there is no charge to join.

The Texas Library Connection listserv will be discontinued August 31, 2022.

The Texas Library Association is moving to a new Association Management System (AMS) this fall. The new AMS will support TLA Engage, the association’s members’ only online communication platform. However, it will not support the Lyris listserv platform which hosts the Texas Library Connection (TLC) listserv and has non-member subscribers.

TLC usage has declined tremendously over the past few years. In 2019 584 emails were sent through TLC, in 2022 only 34 emails have been sent. TLC has been primarily used by school librarians, and that audience has shifted their communication to social media and other more user-friendly and robust online platforms.
