Library Trustees are some of the most effective and valuable Library Champions. We know the challenges library face and the continuum of programs and services offered to our communities.  We are informed and passionate because of our involvement in library oversight and strategic planning. We are also constituents who vote!

NYLA’s Advocacy Day is Wednesday, February 25, 2015. January is the time to plan a trip to Albany to present the library message to New York Legislators.  Last year professionals, trustees and students were able to meet with 45% of New York Senators and Assemblymen. Numbers count! Our collective voice is only as loud as the number of advocates who make a commitment to participate in Advocacy Day. . Check if your library system sponsors buses to Albany for Advocacy Day and make sure to circle February 25th on your calendar.
