New Website Offers Help, Information for Library Trustees
Public library trustees today are dealing with the effects of new technologies, new formats, and new user groups – often with limited funding. As a result, now more than ever, trustees need access to tools and resources that will help them grow and learn.
The staff and trustees of eight of New York’s library systems recognized this critical need and joined together to develop and support New York Library Trustees Online (NYLTO). This website offers discussion forums, links to library law and other resources, and templates for developing good library policies. Contact us at email@example.com if you are a library trustee in the CEF Library System area (Clinton, Essex or Franklin Library System) and would like a logon for the website.

When Cancer Invites Itself to Dinner...
We're happy to be a part of promoting Chef Curtiss Hemm's Pink Ribbon Cooking initiative, which presents a way of cooking delicious food that is simple to prepare, healthy, pleasurable and satisfying, while raising awareness of breast cancer and raising money for the CVPH Foundation.
