Welcome to the new blog for Creating the Future: A 2020 Vision and Plan for Library Services in New York State. This new vision and statewide policy plan for library services was presented to the Board of Regents in April, 2012 by the Regents Advisory Council on Libraries.
This blog will keep you up-to-date on how library leaders and champions across New York State are going about implementing the sixty recommendations listed in Creating the Future. The Regents Advisory Council on Libraries, led by Gerald Nichols and John Hammond, is working with the New York State Library and others to ensure the plan’s success, and we want to know what your organization is doing to help!
