Library Advocacy Day 2016!

On Wednesday March 2, 2016 over 800 Library Advocates showed their support for NY’s Libraries in Albany, NY. Collectively we held meetings with 54% of the NYS Legislature and had 10 members of the Legislature speak at our rally! A huge thanks goes out to:

  1. Senator Hugh Farley
  2. Assemblyman Joe Saladino
  3. Assemblyman Edward Ra
  4. Assemblywoman Michaelle Solages
  5. Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee
  6. Assemblywoman Alicia Hyndman
  7. Senator John Bonacic
  8. Assemblyman Phil Palmesano
  9. Assemblywoman Pat Fahy
  10. Assemblyman Tom Abinanti

A special thanks goes out to those who came out to Albany or wrote their Legislature in support of New York’s Libraries. It is because of these individual efforts that this Library Advocacy Day was one of the most successful yet! Library Advocacy Day helped pave the way for a successful budget outcome.

We cannot wait to see everyone in Albany on Wednesday, March 1 for our 2017 Library Advocacy Day!!
