The Chambers County Library System submits a Public Libraries Annual Report to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) every year in March. This report to the state reflects financial, service, and acquisitions data based on library's fiscal year (January 2017 - December 2017). Once the report is submitted, staff at TSLAC complete an analysis of the data for any errors or accreditation issues. Accreditation is very important to maintain because it allows libraries to be eligible for certain services. Some of those services include: being part of a consortium to allow significant cost savings for TexShare databases, participation in the TexShare card program, participation in the statewide Interlibrary Loan program, eligibility for E-rate (discounts to libraries for internet costs), and eligibility to apply for State Library competitive grants. Chambers County Library System has maintained accreditation each year in order to continue to utlize these services for the benefit of the community.
Texas Public Library Standards The purpose of these standards is to promote quality library service to all Texans, to raise the expectations of library clientele, and to provide an authoritative document by which library quality may be measured. We are proud to say that Chambers County Library System falls under the Exemplary category for all standards under our population served.
