What a year this has been! From advocating for Texas libraries during the 85th Texas Legislative Session and the July Special Session, to overcoming the threat of a $0 budget for the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and Hurricane Harvey's devastation, Texas libraries faced challenges on a myriad of fronts.

No matter what challenges the library profession and land encountered, TLA members came through in force to advocate for the essential services libraries provide to all Texans. The strength of your combined voiced helped protect state library funding, achieve in an increase in federal library funding, and provide hope and resources to libraries around the state impacted by the hurricane.

pportunities and networked with colleagues. Libraries around the state Powered Up and shared their unique programming with communities. 

None of this would happen without our members.
