RLRT

The Retired Librarians Round Table is for 'anyone' who will one day retire!

  • Are you retired but interested in library advocacy opportunities or staying involved in TLA?  
  • Or, are you still working but interested in future retirement?
  • Or maybe you’d just like to stay in contact with the librarians you’ve worked with for years and have some fun?  

The Retired Librarians Round Table is for you. You don’t have to be retired to join; membership is open to any member of the Texas Library Association. Please consider joining when you renew your membership in TLA.

In celebration of TLA’s 100 year anniversary in 2002, an ad hoc Centennial Celebration Committee was charged with planning and coordinating events that captured the spirit of TLA’s rich history and dynamic future. Part of the committee’s work in preserving the past was to honor 100 giants who made significant contributions to libraries and library service during the 1902-2002 period.   1902-2002: 100 Years in Progress

In 2016, the Retired Librarians Round Table initiated an annual social and educational event to be held at annual conference to honor these giants of our profession. It is titled, Celebrating Library Pioneers.
