SRRT: Social Responsibilities Roundtable

Late in 1999, the NYLA Council approved the formation of a Social Responsibilities Round Table, making New York one of three states whose own library association has such a round table.


Libraries champion social equity by facilitating dynamic connections to community, learning and growth.


As trusted servants of the community, libraries play a unique role in providing social infrastructure. In the face of extreme financial disparities, erosion of communities, and acts of discrimination and violence, the SRRT is committed to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion in library services.
