Welcome to the Retired Librarians Round Table!

Beginnings: Introduced to TLA Council by convener Tina Hager in July 2012, ALIVE: The Retired Librarians Interest Group maintained membership of 100 or more for three years, and was redesignated the Retired Librarians Round Table (RLRT) by Council vote on 10 July 2015 during the TLA Annual Assembly in Austin, Texas.

Facebook : Follow your favorite retired librarians on Facebook and share your own "retirement news". 
On Facebook you can search for our group, TLA RLRT. We have two sites on Facebook: one is a page and one is a group. They have the same name. Look for the icon for the Group. Our banner is a picture that says Vote for the Library. That is our closed group. Ask to join or email debhall945@gmail.com with your Facebook username.
