2010 Library Lobby Day in Albany: Tuesday, March 2

MHLS Member Library staff, trustees, Friends and patrons are strongly encouraged to attend Library Lobby Day sponsored by the New York Library Association (NYLA). The goal is to show legislators how much people care about libraries by packing the offices at every appointment. With 13 legislators to meet with we need lots of people to come and show their support!

MHLS makes the day as easy as possible by coordinating transportation, making all appointments (schedule coming soon) and leading participants through the day:

  1. Register online
  2. Appointments with all MHLS area legislators are made by MHLS and posted online (coming soon).
  3. Transportation: OR
