TLC Celebrates 50 Years in Libraries!
Founded in 1974, The Library Corporation (TLC) is thrilled to be celebrating 50 years in business in 2024! TLC has remained a beacon of excellence in library technology since it was founded by the family that still owns and operates the company today. To mark this monumental milestone and honor the library professionals who contributed through the years, TLC will host multiple celebrations throughout the year.
As a woman-owned, privately held company, TLC has remained true to its values of providing cutting-edge solutions, while upholding patron privacy and integrity. Being privately held ensures that TLC’s focus is always on the needs of libraries and the communities they serve.
“We are excited to share this significant moment with you and express our gratitude for your continued support,” conveyed Annette Murphy, CEO and founder. “Thank you for being a part of TLC’s success story for 50 excellent years in the industry, and for many more to come.”
The year-long celebration starts early with a sparkling cider toast at the 2023 American Association of School Librarians (AASL) conference later this month, and will continue through 2024.
Between multiple festivities, exciting promotions and giveaways, a virtual museum, and more, library professionals are invited to join the journey through TLC’s rich history of stability, excellence, and unparalleled support. The celebration of 50 years in libraries will reflect on technological milestones, the family with a vision to support libraries, and the promising future ahead.
