Welcome Library District Directors and Trustees!
This is our place to share information about the running of library districts in Texas. It is imperative that we protect library districts, and the best way to do that is to make sure that existing districts are strong and the people running them are knowledgeable. This website belongs to all of us, and all are invited to contribute and edit this website.

Join the listserv:
The State Library maintains a listserv for sharing information about library districts. It is an open listserv (anyone can join) so it is NOT an avenue for discussing issues, but is instead an avenue for sharing information with people who are involved with and interested in library districts.
To subscribe to the mailing list, go here. Once you are subscribed, you can communicate with everyone on the list by emailing to email@example.com. Discussions are archived at the subscription link.
If you want to discuss particular district issues by email, please use the individual email addresses above.
TLA Discussion Group
Texas Library Association Library District Discussion Group meets twice a year in January and August. The meetings include training on library district issues and when possible, 2.5 hours of PFIA training for treasurers and Investment Officers. Mostly it is attended by library directors, but Trustees and other library employees are very welcome, as are our wonderful representatives from TSLAC (Stacey Malek) and CTLS (Laurie Mahaffey)! Join the listserv to get information about the meeting dates and locations.
