About

The Cross Timbers Library Collaborative (CTLC) is an established group of library professionals based throughout the Cross Timbers region.  We offer this regional partnership through southeastern Kansas across Central Oklahoma to Central Texas but always welcome those librarians looking for a place to share new and innovative ideas.

Our Mission:

The Cross Timbers Library Collaborative fosters partnerships among the region’s libraries through cooperative staff development, resource sharing, and innovative programming.

Our Values:

Inclusivity, Collaboration, Responsiveness, Cost Effectiveness, Sustainability, Innovation, Collegiality, Information Sharing, Flexibility, Leadership

Governance of the CTLC:

CTLC is a self-organized coalition of libraries with open membership. We are directed by participants; attendees at each planning meeting serve as the steering group for the organization.

Transparency in governance will be maintained by publishing outcomes of the planning meetings via the website and listserv.

Affinity groups based on the interests of individuals or organizations may form to address common issues.
