Library Advocacy Day - The Basics
Directions & Logistics
Find a bus heading to Albany for Advocacy Day! More information to come soon!
Please plan for airport-like security measures in place in the New York State Capitol, the Legislative Office Building and its surrounding buildings. Please be prepared to pass through a metal detector and have your belongings go through an X-ray machine to enter.
All adults (16+) must show a photo ID to enter - it is recommended that attendees carry a photo ID at all times.
In addition, items that are sharp or may be construed as weapons are not allowed in any of the Empire State Plaza buildings (including "sticks" attached to Rally signs). Due to the security measures and the number of people expected in Albany that day, please leave yourself plenty of time to through security before meetings with legislators.
If you have questions, please contact the NYLA Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
