NYLA Conference in Saratoga
11/28/2006 — Library Director Teresa Dearing, attended the New York State Library Association (NYLA) Annual Conference 'Adding Value: Formula for the Future' in Saratoga Springs from November 1-4. The annual conference allows local library staff to remain up-to-date on the latest trends in services, products and technology, legislative and financial issues facing libraries, and best practices for administration and management.
'Information gained at the NYLA Conference allows Dansville Public Library to remain at the forefront of library services,' says Terry Dearing. 'For example, I was able to gain information about various funding avenues, learn about the team members required in any expansion project, and view several presentations on choosing furnishings and arranging library interiors.' In addition, Dearing attended the 'trade show' which features publishers, library equipment and material vendors, and new technological developments in library reference and research.
Founded in 1890, the mission of the New York Library Association is to lead in the development, promotion and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning, quality of learning, quality of life, and equal opportunity for all New Yorkers.
