Important Information and New Message

Happy Holidays all;

During this holiday season I want to reach out and send my best wishes to all of you and your families.

This is a great time of year to visit with family and friends. I hope that everyone experiences some of the joy that comes from being with those you cherish the most.

Our Scholarship Ball was a huge success and I would like to thank everyone who participated and celebrated with us. Photos and financial updates will be posted soon.

In the spirit of this holiday season, I want to extend my thanks to all of you for everything that you do for the New York Black Librarian’s Caucus.

I hope to see all members at our next general meeting on January 20, 2018 we have some very important business to report on and vote on.

All the best and Happy New Year,
S. Michele Echols, President NYBLC
