If you can’t go to Albany on March 1st, let’s help pave the way with lots of calls and messages to our legislators!
NYCSLA is asking you to write/call/email your legislator’s office on (or before) Feb. 28th: the day before NYLA’s ADVOCACY DAY. When you do, add a comment to this post, even paste your letter if you want to so others can use it, and let’s see how many members we can get to support NYLA Advocacy Day on March 1st. See you here on the 28th! And thank you.
Use NYLA’s advocacy tools to help craft your message:
What can I do now to support NYLA’s Advocacy Day?
- Call your legislator’s office, either at his or her district office, or in Albany.
- Tell him / her how important your library is to the community – and its voting citizens.
- Tell him / her that increased funding for libraries is ESSENTIAL and CRITICAL.
- Use NYLA’s helpful advocacy tools to help shape your personal message.
We have a great opportunity to speak out for additional funding for electronic resources, construction, and aid for all libraries. It’s not hard–and we all need to do our part in strengthening New York’s libraries, library systems, and special collections.
