In cooperation with our professional partners at NYLA, a statewide Library Advocacy Day is held annually in Albany. The 2024 event will be held in Albany on February 7.
In 2023, the event was held in-person on February 28. CLRC scheduled appointments with our regional legislators that day in Albany but a snowstorm cancelled travel for most of our advocates.
In 2022, CLRC member libraries submitted stories on how they help their communities and students. The stories were compiled and sent to our regional representatives. CLICK HERE to read the stories. What a powerful way to advocate for increased funding and support!
