2023 Annual Report

The New Yorkers for Better Libraries PAC mission is to assist in the legislative advocacy process by financially supporting legislators who are committed to helping libraries, and to make sure that our spokespeople are heard in all the varying venues that Albany offers.

The importance of library advocates being seen and heard has never been so evident. Because of library advocates’ efforts, the 2023 budget cuts recommended by the Governor were restored by our friends in the State Legislature, resulting in an allocation of $99.6 million in State Aid to Libraries and $34 million in library construction grants.

NY4BL will always need your continued support because the fight for libraries never ends.  Please make a donation today so we can sustain our mission of helping libraries be heard in Albany.
