NTLP has established the North Texas Library Commercial Partner Program to facilitate mutually beneficial relationships between our library Partners and library vendors. Please find a listing of our participating vendors below.

Vendors can participate in the program by submitting to NTLP a firm commitment in a letter to the NTLP membership highlighting products or services and price discounts. NTLP will communicate the offer to our partner libraries.
