The following message was sent to me following a working session at TLA Annual Assembly. Please follow the link and update yourself on SB 483. If possible I will arrange for the September 13 videoconference to be received by Region VII. You will be welcome to attend. sg

On behalf of the Texas State Library, I want to thank you all for attending the TSLAC K-12 Library Stakeholders meeting that was held during TLA Annual Assembly in July. We cannot stress enough how much we appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedules to help us plan for the implementation of SB 483.

The report of the meeting and the transcript of the small group discussions are available on our web site at: (near the bottom of the page). Your input is invaluable to us as we progress forward into this new partnership.

We will be holding an expanded focus group with the K-12 public school library community on September 13th at various videoconferencing sites around the state. An announcement will be coming out next week, so please encourage your colleagues to attend.

Once again, thank you for your continued dedication to library resource sharing in Texas.
