Executive Director’s Report – August 2015
The Best Conference Ever
Together with a small army of volunteers, we strive every year to make the NYLA Annual Conference a bit better than the year before. This year will be no exception, as over one thousand of the best and brightest librarians from across the state come together for three days with the express purpose of developing themselves and the profession.
NYLA125: Explore. Learn. Grow. This anniversary year’s roster boasts a keynote address by David Lankes, remarks from ALA President Sari Feldman, and the historic host city of Lake Placid – the hometown of NYLA founder, Melvil Dewey.
Two new events will bring fresh excitement:
NYLA2015 Opening Ceremony
NYLA After Dark
