Creating the Future NYLA Program Results
The Regents Advisory Council on Libraries led a successful program at the 2012 NYLA Conference, Creating the Future: Implementing the 2020 Vision and Plan. Under the Council’s leadership, members of the library community were able to come together and discuss implementation of New York’s plan for library services.
Members of the Council led group discussions that helped determine priority recommendations for each type of library. The list of priority recommendations can be found at: http://www.nysl.nysed.gov/libdev/adviscns/rac/2020final/priorities.htm
Thank you to the many individuals and library leaders who participated in this program, especially those who volunteered to join taskforces to support implementation of priority recommendations. Congratulations to the Council on the many beneficial results of their program, and I would like to thank them for all of their hard work in ensuring the plan’s continued success.
