A New Name for METRO & Its Sister Councils

The NY 3Rs Association, Inc. is pleased to announce it has changed its name to Empire State Library Network. Empire State Library Network (ESLN) is an affiliation of the nine regional library councils across the state of New York.

ESLN coordinates several important statewide services, including Empire Library Delivery, New York State Historic Newspapers, New York Heritage, and Empire State Digital Network.

Additionally, ESLN provides a wide range of continuing education and professional development opportunities for libraries of all kinds, and works on special collaborative projects through its I2NY Initiative.
