So with library budgets firmly in mind...
On Feb. 24, members of the Regents Advisory Council on Libraries and others, including Regent James Dawson and new State Librarian Bernard (Bernie) Margolis, will be visiting legislators in order to advocate for our libraries.
On March 10, librarians, library workers, and library supporters from across New York State will converge on Albany to visit legislators and lobby for our libraries. (The March 10th event is organized by NYLA.)
We hope that other library supports will visit their legislators, write to them or call them and deliver the message that our libraries need to be adequately funded in order to survive.
Our libraries are part of the education system in our communities. Our libraries...
- provide information to for-profit and not-for-profit businesses who need that information in order to be competitive.
- provide information for job seekers as well as those who are trying to live the American dream.
- are at the center of our communities and we cannot let them disappear.
