What Could Be Lost – What Could Be Gained

Over 6 million people in Texas are served by CTLS member libraries. These public libraries turn to CTLS for help with controlling their costs, developing educational programs, and get advice about the best library practices. Without CTLS the tax-paying public would have to pay more to accomplish less at higher risk. General giving allows CTLS to keep its doors open and help safeguard the public trust.
