Keepin' Up At The Capitol

"Over the coming weeks, NYLA will be working with its legislative allies in both houses and the Executive chamber to ensure policies we support are signed into law. Your voices will play a crucial part in making sure this comes to pass, so please stay tuned as we will be calling upon you to contact your elected officials and help push these items across the finish line.

I am proud of the work we have done together and I am excited to continue forward as we work together to win further gains for libraries and their patrons in every community across our great state.
