Sign-up for the New York Library Association’s Online Advocacy Center and speak up for libraries!
As always, we rely on library stakeholders like you to take action, particularly during the NYS budget negotiation season (February & March), and contact your elected officials through NYLA’s online advocacy tools once you receive an “Advocacy Alert”. In the interim, we encourage all library and library system directors to encourage staff to participate in these actions. When engaging with your elected officials, it is important that you discuss the great work you and your library are doing, and to also stay on message by using the talking points NYLA provides on their website. For those of you on social media, there is a set of tweets that we encourage you to use, and tweet at your local Assemblyman and Senator.
