TLA 2009 – Strong Libraries, Strong Scores

The 5th annual Strong Libraries, Strong Scores mini conference for School Administrators occurred as part of the Texas Library Association Annual conference held in Houston March 31-April 3.

 

We had over 85 school administrators attend. We have already received 2 e-mails unsolicited from administrators that were going to increase the Library budget or rethink how the campus and Library were going to relate next year. Effecting a change in how administrators understand Libraries is very rewarding.
