The SCLA Board welcomes you to the new partnership between the Suffolk County Library Association (SCLA) and the New York Library Association (NYLA).
As you know, the SCLA membership voted to associate with NYLA and form a regional chapter. We are working through that transition, and have reached an important benchmark.
SCLAs membership roster has been imported into NYLAs membership database, allowing NYLA to begin the process of recognizing SCLA members and processing dues payments for SCLA. We are asking that you please go the the NYLA Online Membership Center and follow the steps to process your SCLA dues renewal payment for 2013.
You can also renew your membership at the SCLA table at this year’s LILC.
Additional details on the SCLA / NYLA regional affiliate process can be found online: CLICK HERE
Thank you for your support of SCLA and your patience during this transition period. If you have any questions please email me at jalbano@commackpubliclibrary.
The Excellence in Library Service Award (ELSA) is designed to recognize dedication to public service demonstrated by any staff member of a public, school, special or academic library. We welcome nominations submitted by any employee of a Suffolk County library or any Suffolk County library patron. Pages, clerks, librarians and trainees, as well as office, custodial and security staff from any Suffolk County library are eligible. Outstanding public service may be demonstrated by fostering team spirit, exemplary job performance, promoting good will among patrons and staff, or an innovative approach to one’s work.
