In 2016 the NYLA Sustainability Initiative launched a Road Map to Sustainability. We’ve heard from dozens of library leaders across the state that they are making good things happen. We want to hear more! Come and share how you got started, what you’ve been working on and how the NYLA-SI project has changed your thinking about the future of your library. At this event we will also share details of the new Sustainable Library Certification Program being launched through NYLA!
