Tech Camp 2015: Technology Conference within a Conference

Here is your chance to experience a technology conference at TLA! TLA Youth Programming (TASL, CRT, YART) is working to bring a preconference day of high interest, technology-focused topics to help you integrate and use technology in your library.

For more information, please visit the Tech Camp webpage.


The Young Adult Round Table sponsors the Texas Lone Star Reading List, the Tayshas High School Reading List, the Maverick Graphic Novel Reading List, and the Young Adult Reading Incentives Award. The Young Adult Round Table also co-sponsors TT4L (Texas Teens for Libraries) and the YART-Linworth Publishing/LMC TLA Conference Stipend. The Texas Library Association sponsors reading lists solely to encourage free voluntary reading.

Membership in the Young Adult Round Table will include any individual, institution, commercial business, or affiliate who is a member of TLA and who elects to be a member of YART upon payment of the membership fee as provided by the TLA Bylaws.
