About the New Yorkers for Better Libraries PAC
New Yorkers for Better Libraries Political Action Committee (NYLIBS-PAC) was formed in 2003 by library leaders who believe in the importance of campaign contributions as part of a multi-faceted legislative strategy designed to increase state aid to libraries and library systems.
The mission of the New Yorkers for Better Libraries PAC is to provide financial support to legislators and candidates for state office who are in a position to effectively champion libraries. Last year, we contributed over $30,000 to those in Albany who can help libraries. A complete list of recipients is included on the NYLIBS-PAC website. These contributions have brought us access to decision-makers and have signaled a seriousness of intent within the library community.
