Calling all Texas public libraries: Take the 2017 TSLAC Public Library Speed Test!

2017 August 8
by Henry Stokes

The Texas State Library is currently collecting Internet speeds from all Texas public libraries (both mains and branches) with an online speed test. The test measures a library location’s Internet speed (how fast things load from the Internet) and automatically sends that data to us at the State Library. The data will be invaluable in our planning and help us determine any statewide needs for broadband.


Email invitations with the link were sent out yesterday to all directors. Please submit your test results by Friday, August 18th. If you didn’t receive the invitation, please contact Henry Stokes, 512-463-6624 or

Many thanks to those speedy libraries who’ve already participated this year!


Update: Some folks are reporting that the “Begin Test” button isn’t appearing on the second page – Sorry! This may because Adobe Flash has not been enabled on the browser being used for the test.  To enable Adobe Flash for the browser, please use the instructions found on this site.   If you have further issues, please contact Henry Stokes, 512-463-6624 or
