The Annual Conference and Trade Show, held each October/November around the state, is the largest state library association conference held on the East Coast. Offering a wide variety of programs, special events, networking opportunities, and vendor displays, the NYLA Annual Conference and Trade Show offers educational opportunities for all segments of the library community from library staff to trustees.
A message from our President...
Please join me in Saratoga Springs this fall as the New York Library community gets together for our largest annual event. The theme, “Writing Our Next Chapter” has been taken to heart by the various programmers, sections and vendors. I look forward to hearing about where my library is going to be in the coming years. With a great trade show floor allowing access to vendors and sections of NYLA, scores of programs and our special events, it is something you do not want to miss. If you are thinking of coming, but need some financial help, please look for the various section scholarships and the Dewey Fellowship award.
I look forward to seeing you in November. Have a question? Contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org or @bollermn on twitter.
Matthew Bollerman, NYLA President
