Invited guests include Library Directors, Librarians, Administrators, Library Advocates, staff, Elected Officials and other notable members of the New York library and educational community.
The NYBLC is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that has been a constant voice for diversity and library advocacy in the New York library community for almost 50 years. The goal of the Caucus is to provide financial support to graduate students of African American descent pursuing a master’s degree in Library and Information Science. The Donna Hoke Scholarship is our primary tool and, to date, over $45,000 scholarships have been awarded!
