Libraries of all types, regardless of geographic location, can become Partner Libraries of NTLP.
NTLP Partner Libraries have access to NTLP-negotiated vendor discounts, and are eligible for discounts on NTLP training and other services. NTLP Partner Libraries also participate in determining the future direction of NTLP programs and services.
In this time of reduced state funding for library development, your community can support regional library cooperation and development by supporting NTLP. Your Friends of the Library or other library support group might consider sponsoring your library's membership in NTLP, to enable your library to benefit from NTLP Partner-only services.
