The NYLA conference was held November 1-4 in Saratoga Springs, NY. NYLA Council met in person during the conference.

NYLA Advocacy initiatives have been announced but are not up on the main NYLA site yet. They will be focusing on the future of NOVEL NY and preventing bans of library materials, services, and programming. Budget asks including $147.1m for library operating aid, $69.4 for library construction aid, and $11.00/pupil for library materials aid (this affects k-12 schools). This information should be publicly available soon if anyone is interested in participating in library advocacy this year.
