I hope you enjoyed a holiday season filled with friends, family and time to relax. Now it is time to move into the new year.

LTA is getting 2017 off to a busy start. At our November business meeting, the LTA board elected two new board members and you’ll meet them in this issue. We are delighted to maintain a connection with the Westchester Library System and expand our reach to the Buffalo Erie County Library System. Because of timing during May 2017, LTA won’t be sponsoring a full Annual Trustee Institute this year. We WILL be co sponsoring two regional mini-institutes. Preliminary details on the first event are on page ? Of this issue. The second regional meeting will be later this Summer. Both will be chock full of interesting workshops and networking opportunities, so I hope you will attend the one nearest you.
