Where It All Started for NTLP

As NTRLS, formerly NTLS, rides into our nonprofit's history, it's interesting to note when NTLP, originally NTRLS, Inc., started, and which libraries were involved.

The date is April 1, 1985. The Texas State Library and Archives Commission sends a letter to the North Texas Library System stating that the State agency has "received 35 affirmative resolutions from governing authorities to organize NTLS into a nonprofit corporation. The resolutions authorize the NTLS Advisory Council to incorporate the NTLS."

Those libraries voting yes were the public libraries located in the following cities: Azle, Bedford, Burkburnett, Burleson, Cleburne, Electra, Euless, Fort Worth, Glen Rose, Graham, Granbury, Grapevine, Henrietta, Hurst, Jacksboro, Keller, Lake Worth, Lewisville, Mansfield, Mineral Wells, North Richland Hills, Olney, Paducah, Pilot Point, Richland Hills, River Oaks, Saginaw, Seymour, Springtown, Stephenville, The Colony, Vernon, Watagua, Weatherford and Wichita Falls.

So ... any ideas on how NTLP should celebrate its 30th birthday April 1, 2015?
