Send in your ballots

By now, everyone eligble should have received a ballot for TLA's future leadership. This year we're voting for not just Vice President and Secretary, but also ALA and SELA Councilor Representatives. These are only open every 3 years, so your vote makes an extra impact. 

While TLA is still using paper ballots, there are hopes for online voting in the future. The recent changes to the TLA website make it theoretically possible, but other procedural changes need to be made first and we didn't want to rush the change for this year. 

Off to find a stamp!

Tell your Friends

Be sure to tell your Friends of the Library groups about Friday at the TLA Conference. It's the day TLA honors Friends with awards, a luncheon, and sessions focused on this important part of the library family. 

Friends can register for just Friday, March 23, and learn How to Be an Advocate Without Lobbying, hear about the Transformations of Three Friends Groups, and network with other Friends of Libraries from across the state. It's a great opportunity to re-energize and get inspired.

Registration prices go up next week! See the TLA website for more information.
