The Central NY Library Resources Council supports libraries in Herkimer, Madison, Oneida & Onondaga counties and advocates for libraries everywhere!

First Monday takes us to visit member libraries who are innovating in their buildings, with their staff and patron programs.

In our ongoing efforts to Connect the Information Community of Central New York, CLRC is interested in reaching out to all types of libraries throughout our four-county region. On the first Monday of every month, CLRC members and friends will have a chance to see how everyone can be an innovator!

Does your library have a fun program or a quirky collection? Have you recently completed a remodeling project or interesting collaboration with your community? CLRC regional library staff would like to know more! Contact CLRC and show your stuff on a First Monday!

We encourage iSchool students to take part and see what’s out there. It’s a great opportunity to network with the CNY library community.

Next Event:

June 2 – Crouse Hospital Library
765 Irving Ave, Syracuse

Time: 2:00 to 4:00pm

First Mondays are free of charge but please REGISTER HERE


The future of nursing education — simulation training — has arrived in the Marley Education Center at Crouse Hospital.

Come see how the Library and the Learning & Simulation Center have discovered exciting opportunities for collaboration through simulation.

Kristine Delaney, MLS, Library Services Administrator, Ellen Owens, MLS, RN, Coordinator of Education, and Doreen Masella, RN, MS, College of Nursing Faculty and Nursing Lab/Simulation Manager will bring the latest technologies to life for you, including iPads, iMovies and Sim Man, one of our adult high-fidelity manikins.

Step into a simulation experience where students experience patient care in a safe and technologically advanced learning environment. We’ll get Sim Man’s heart – and maybe yours, too – RACING with excitement!

Refreshments and discussion will conclude the tour.

The library is located on the 4th floor of the Marley Education Center. Directions.
