Library advocates are faced with an uphill battle in the aftermath of the Governor’s proposed cuts to both library aid AND construction aid.
Library Advocacy Day in Albany is the chance to make a BIG impression on decision makers in Albany at a critical time before the budget is finalized.
Be an activist. Join hundreds of library advocates from around the state on Wednesday, March 1st in Albany. It’s an experience every library supporter should have at least once in their life. March through the halls of the Legislative Office Building with like-minded community members, speak face-to-face with legislators and their staff, join the Rally at noon to make some noise and cheer on those legislators who are actively supporting libraries.
p.s. Don’t wait until March 1st to reach out to your legislators. They need to hear from you NOW!
Well it is certainly still winter in the Hudson Valley. If you are worried about the weather, please check cancellations.com, our website, and or our Facebook page to make sure that we are open and that programs are taking place at the appointed times.
Thank you to all who came out for the Community Forum on Thursday. There was a lot of enthusiasm and some great ideas that we will work on implementing to make Morton the library and community center that we all envision. Stay tuned for specifics and please keep sharing your ideas with us.
Note: The meetings of the Morton Board are held on the first Thursday of every month at 5:00 p.m. The public is always welcome.
