The central library and others throughout the state are asking you to help promote just how much you get out of your library. Use this Library Use Value Calculator, take a screen shot of the big total, and use it as a sign in a photo to post to your social media channels. Don't forget to include yourself or your family in the pic! When posting, use the hashtags #NYLALAD18 and #LibrariesAreEducation
