Support Your Library

How can you advocate for NYS Libraries?

The New York Library Association (NYLA) leads, educates and advocates for the advancement of the New York library community. NYLA is the voice of the library community advocating at the state and local level on behalf of libraries with the Governor and State Legislature, the NYS Board of Regents, and local governments that provide funding to libraries and library systems. The more NYLA members, and library advocates, the stronger the voice of the library community! We need your help with advocating for funding and legislation that will benefit and improve library services and the librarian profession.
