About Advocacy Day:
CLRC will charter a bus to take members and library supporters to Albany for the New York Library Association’s (NYLA) Library Advocacy Day. All participants have an opportunity to meet with their state legislators and discuss the importance of libraries and their impact on people’s everyday lives.

Check out the CLRC Advocacy page on our website for a list of regional legislators. Download NYLA Legislative Priorities here. A schedule of appointments will be provided to all participants.

For bus riders:
Pickup locations will be at the CLRC office on Ridings Road in Syracuse and the North Utica Shopping Plaza in Utica (located at 50 Auert Avenue). Additional stops along the New York State Thruway at the Herkimer and Little Falls Commuter Park & Ride will be added if needed.

Open until filled. Reserve your seat early.
