Winter 2014 issue of Trustee
Greetings to LTA members and Trustee readers.
This edition of the Trustee contains lots of news so I will keep my comments brief. Please make note of the upcoming Advocacy Day, LTA award nominations, 2014 Trustee Institute hosted by the Mid-Hudson, Ramapo Catskill and Westchester Library systems. and our new members only initiative.
A recent article in the Library Journal mentioned libraries recognized as Stars for their success in programming, patron visits, Internet use and other characteristics. New York has the most libraries (34) with this designation. I am proud to say that two of these libraries (Fayetteville and Elbridge) are in my own system, Onondaga County Library System. Libraries with Star designation range from large to small facilities. Congratulations to each of these libraries for earning this designation. We all know how hard our trustees and staff work to provide great
library services. It is nice to see some recognition for their success.
You will find even more content on our website. So, check it often to keep up with information important to library trustees.
Wishing you a prosperous and happy New Year.
