NNYLN Plan of Development, 2017-2020

Solicitation for Comments

The NNYLN updates its Plan of Development annually.  The Plan reflects projects, tasks, and activities the Network intends to undertake or sustain over the next three years.

We are particularly interested in members helping identify other new projects that the Network could undertake to cooperatively assist our member libraries.

Comments about the Plan of Development, 2017-2020 are welcome and should be addressed to John Hammond at john@nnyln.org.
