Community Sharing: Learn more at our TLA session on April 21!

The Texas Library Association, TLA, annual conference is just one week away. As you pack your bags for San Antonio, don’t forget to save space on your schedule for an interactive session about Community Sharing hosted by Houston Public Library, Baker & Taylor and Follett.communityshare

Two heads are better than one. This tried and true piece of wisdom is the basis for Baker & Taylor and Follett’s groundbreaking Community Sharing program. This program gives new life to the way libraries circulate digital content by connecting communities with the schools they serve through the simple art of sharing. When public and school libraries work together, good things happen.

Houston Public Library is one system that saw all the good Community Sharing can do in action. They’ll share their experience with the program and how it has and will impact their community at the session. Presenters from Houston Public Library, Follett and Baker & Taylor will lead the session on Friday, April 21 from 2:45 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. in room 205 of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. RSVP below!
