Your membership renewals ensure that the hard work of the association can continue in the upcoming year. Don't miss out on the many benefits of TLA membership.
Here are just a few reasons we believe a TLA membership is an important investment:
Advocacy – Communicate libraries’ value to the community, to stimulate improvements, and to influence public policy and funding.
Awards – Recognize excellence in the profession. Internships are available for library school interns to work and attend the annual TLA Conference; Members are eligible to apply for the Edwin S. Gleaves Scholarship to defray costs in attending Library school.
Communication – Learn and network through TLA online publications, the TLA-L listserv, and TLA’s presence on social networking sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.
Continuing education opportunities – FREE access to TLA sponsored webinars, which occur roughly once a month on a variety of topics.

Professional development opportunities – Opportunities are available to publish research in Tennessee Libraries and lead presentations at TLA annual conferences.
Employment assistance – Employment opportunities are available through the TLA Career Center, both for job-seekers and employers. TLA also offers Career Development Services at the annual conference, providing members with résumé help and mock interview practice.
