Happy Birthday TSLA!

Today, on our Facebook page, we recognize the 60th anniversary of the current Tennessee State Library and Archives building. On June 17, 1953, our facility opened to the public. Since then, thousands of people have visited to research a wide variety of subjects.

To celebrate this occasion, we encourage you to "Like" us on Facebook. Better yet, please visit us in person on 403 Seventh Avenue North in Nashville or online at
