Everywhere we look, we find articles about libraries and various archives that are cutting back, reducing the services they offer their patrons. It is refreshing to hear of a state library and a state archive that is actually EXPANDING its services.
The following was written by the New York State Library and New York State Archives:
The New York State Library and New York State Archives will institute new Saturday hours beginning on October 16th. Saturday hours of operation at the two facilities, located on the 7th and 11th floor of the Cultural Education Center (CEC) at the Empire State Plaza in Albany, will be from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free public parking will be available in the Madison Avenue parking lots adjacent to the CEC. Directions and parking information is available on the New York State Museum website at http://www.nysm.nysed.gov/information/general/muswhere.html.
