Individual TLA Memberships (See below for ALA/TLA Joint Student Memberships)

If you don't want to join/renew online, you can mail the Individual Membership form (PDF) along with a check to our offices! The membership year is January 1 - December 31. The basic dues includes a complimentary membership in one division and one round table or interest group (see TLA Groups). If a member chooses to join additional divisions, ten percent (10%) should be added to the basic dues for each additional division. If a member chooses to join additional round tables and/or interest groups, five percent (5%) should be added to the basic dues for each choice. For a complete list of TLA divisions, round tables, and interest groups, view the organization page.


As a member service, TLA accepts American Express, VISA, MasterCard, Discover/Novus and PayPal. If you want to pay by credit card, joining or renewing online is the easiest option. Your browser will be transported to a secure server where your credit card information will be safe.
