Mission Statement for the North Texas Library Consortium

The North Texas Library Consortium is dedicated to enriching the communities of its member libraries through full access of the combined consortium resources.

Vision Statement for the North Texas Library Consortium

The North Texas Library Consortium will provide library services to all children, youth and adults in the individual communities of its members for the personal enjoyment, growth and cultural enrichment of the individuals by:

·        Providing a single combined online catalog.

·        Sharing consortium responsibility through equal representation on the consortium executive board.

·        Encouraging each library’s staff by providing training and everyday solutions to problems the staff may be facing.

The North Texas Library Consortium welcomes all libraries who are interested in exploring the world of library support and shared resources through consortium membership.

WHO WE ARE: The North Texas Library Consortium consists of independent libraries in North Texas that have agreed to share an integrated library system in order to better serve their patrons. Library patrons can borrow and return materials at any location, drawing on the collections of all the member libraries, but each library maintains its own policies and independent administration. North Texas Library Partners (North Texas Regional Library System) assists NTLC with administrative and technical support, but does not take part in consortium governance.
