On March 11, 2008, the New York Library Association sponsored its annual Library Lobby Day in Albany. METRO’s Executive Director Dottie Hiebing joined with colleagues and library advocates from across New York State to send a compelling message to our elected officials about the vital role libraries play and to advocate for appropriate resources for libraries across the state.

We’ve just learned that funding for libraries was only slightly decreased in the recently passed New York State budget—relatively good news in a year of fiscal restraint.
