Become a Library Advocate!
You can help libraries across New York State by signing up as Library Advocate with the New York Library Association (NYLA). NYLA will contact Library Advocates via email with Library Alerts – a request for you to contact your legislators in support of libraries on time-sensitive issues. For more information, see the Advocacy page on NYLA’s website. Or sign up right here by submitting this form.
Find out how much value you receive from your library by using the Library Value Calculator.
