Western New York libraries are fortunate to have supportive legislators in our area, such as State Senator Tim Kennedy and State Assembly Member Crystal Peoples-Stokes. Through the years, they have worked to secure funding for libraries as well as literacy programs. Staff for both legislators spoke in our first LIBTalks video, about advocating for library funding.
And now, Kennedy and Peoples-Stokes will be holding a town hall meeting focusing on the importance of all types of libraries and how they make a difference in the lives of the people in their districts. This is the place for members of the public to talk about what their libraries (public, academic, and others) mean to them.
The event will be held on September 23rd from 10am to 11am. It will be located in the “Ring of Knowledge” at the central downtown library in the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library system. No registration is required.
