Serving the Big Country and the Concho Valley

Welcome to District 1 of the Texas Library Association! Our District's membership includes over 200 Librarians, Staff, Trustees, full-time Library students, and other interested individuals representing school, public, academic, and special libraries. We are located in the "Big Country" and Concho Valley regions of Mid-West and West Texas.

Our 32 counties include: Brown, Callahan, Coke, Coleman, Comanche, Concho, Crockett, Eastland, Fisher, Haskell, Irion, Jones, Kent, Kimble, Knox, Mason, McCulloch, Menard, Mitchell, Nolan, Reagan, Runnels, Shackelford, Schleicher, Scurry, Stephens, Sterling, Stonewall, Sutton, Taylor, Throckmorton andd Tom Green.  The major metropolitan areas within this region consist of Abilene (MSA pop. 157,322) and San Angelo (MSA pop. 104,830). District 1 includes 32 Texas counties with a total population of 473,203 covering over 34,257 square miles.

Environmentally, this diverse area can be divided a variety of ways: by geology, weather, water resources, vegetation, etc. However, perhaps the most helpful and detailed way of characterization is by Land Resource Region, which then provides additional information regarding the other categories. District 1 is primarily composed of the Texas North-Central Prairies, Central Rolling Red Plains, and Edwards Plateau; but some counties also contain land within the West Cross Timbers, Texas Central Basin, and the Southern Desertic Basins, Plains, and Mountains.
