An Update from the Director 
Dear CDLC Members,
 
Happy Summer! 

At the CDLC Membership Meeting in May, I presented an update  and Board elections took place. Welcome new Trustee Andrew White , Library Director at RPI , and returning Trustee Jen Cannell , Library and Arts Program Manager at Capital Region BOCES School Library System . Thank you to Hudson Valley Community College for hosting us!  
 
This meeting was held as we transition the Membership Meeting to the Spring and plan a Member Showcase in the Fall. Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 19th!
