Celebrate the numerous ways libraries transform Texas

“Libraries transform Texas because they transform our people.”– Mayor Steve Adler, City of Austin


Mark your calendars and plan to celebrate the numerous ways libraries transform Texas During the week of October 7 – 11 all libraries are invited to share how they transform their communities through innovative spaces, programs, education, technology, events, and more.


Libraries are the center of our communities – whether the community is a school, a campus, a neighborhood, a small town or a large city. They bring people together to learn, grow and connect in countless ways.


Help us spread the word about the transformative power of Texas libraries during the first Libraries Transform Texas Week. The TLA PR & Marketing committee has complied promotional materials you can use during this week including:


  • Libraries Transform Texas logo
  • Because Statements
  • Postcards
  • Posters


We created videos featuring leaders from around Texas sharing how libraries transform their communities and will share one each day during Libraries Transform Texas Week.  Hopefully they will inspire librarians to create and share their own short videos! You can also share your stories online.


Follow Libraries Transform Texas on Facebook and Twitter (@TX4Libraries), and use #LibrariesTransformTexas in your posts.


The Texas Library Association is the largest state library association in the U.S. Whether promoting intellectual freedom or working together to strengthen libraries and demonstrate their value, TLA is the embodiment of the aspirations first conceived over 110 years ago.
