New Yorkers for Better Libraries Political Action Committee (NYLIBS-PAC) was formed in 2003 by library leaders who believe in the importance of campaign contributions as part of a multi-faceted legislative strategy designed to increase state aid to libraries and library systems.

The mission of the New Yorkers for Better Libraries PAC is to provide financial support to legislators who are in a position to effectively champion libraries. In 2008, it contributed $26,700 to 35 campaign committees. These contributions have brought access to decision makers and have signaled a seriousness of intent within the library community.

For hotel registration: A group rate is available - you will need to mention New York Library Association. Call 1-518-458-7250 to book.
