NYLA Round Tables:
Reflecting Your Interests

Round tables cover a host of library issues and provide members with a place to share common interests and educate colleagues through conference programs and other gatherings. With generally fewer than 150 members, round tables offer you a chance for leadership. Each round table membership is an additional $10.00. NYLA Members may join as many round tables as they choose.
