The Public Library Directors’ Association has again stepped up with a $5000 donation to NY4BL PAC. The PLDA of Suffolk County has historically been a wonderful supporter of our efforts to help libraries be heard in Albany.
Libraries are under attack from many forces these days. Flat funding at the state level, coupled with reduced funding at the local level, leave libraries in the conundrum of increased usage and fewer dollars to pay for services. The Defenders of Libraries are library champions who donate $20 or support our libraries’ message in Albany. Please join us and become a Defender of Libraries.
Congratulations and thanks to the Nassau County Library Directors for their successful June 8th NY4BL fundraiser, Trivia Night at the Freeport Yacht Club. This group has conducted fundraisers for the New Yorkers for Better Libraries for several consecutive years, and their creativity and hard work are greatly appreciated.
