Texas Library is often cited (and rarely disputed as) the best state show in all of the US. Their library conference certainly lives up to the adage that “everything is big in Texas”: Attendance is consistently over 7,000 librarians and exhibitors. This show attracts all types of librarians but with the primary mix being from school and public libraries. The show’s exhibit staff does an excellent job of keeping attendees on the exhibit floor. While public librarians are in meetings, school librarians have free time to be at the exhibits, and vice versa.
Despite what you may have heard, this show is not only for childrens books. CBE has a nice assortment of books including reference, novels, academic as well as childrens books. The attendees take their time and look through all of the books. In fact, public librarians have commented how happy they are to see adult level material at our display in all subject areas.
Exhibit and catalog are organized by Dewey Decimal Category.
