Great Opportunity - Represent YOUR library system as a Director on the NYSALB Board.
Fall 2008 issue of TrusteeNYSALB tries to represent all the areas of the state. But right now, we do not have board members from all regions. The following systems are not currently represented:
Brooklyn (Kings County), Buffalo-Erie, Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System, Clinton-Essex-Franklin, Finger Lakes Library System, Four County (Broome-Chenango-Delaware-Otsego counties), Mohawk Valley (Fulton-Montgomery-Schenectady-Schoharie counties), New York (Bronx-New York-Richmond counties), Nioga Library System, North Country (Jefferson-Lewis-Oswego-St. Lawrence counties), Ramapo Catskill (Orange-Rockland-Sullivan-Ulster[part] counties), Westchester Library System.
We encourage all library advocates to seek out qualified people to serve on our board. Any person who is currently on a library or system board is eligible to serve on our board. We meet about five times a year, in Albany. Travel expenses to Albany can be reimbursed. We also try to participate in the Albany Library Lobby Day in early Spring, and attend the annual meeting of the New York Library Association. For information on how you, or someone you know, who is a library trustee, can participate in important policy-making decisions that affect libraries across the State of New York, please email NYSALB Board Member Mary Ellen O’Connor at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 518-463-3058.
