New York, we love you. You’re a concrete jungle where dreams are made, there’s nothing you can’t do – let’s hear it for New York.
Yes, we just paraphrased a Jay-Z song, but can you blame us? We’re talking about the Big Apple itself, New York City in all its glory – and its crown jewel, the New York Library Association. We’re excited and proud to announce our formal support of NYLA’s (even their acronym is cool) 2014 Library Advocacy Day, in Albany, New York.
NYLA is a prominent voice in the library community, promoting and advocating on behalf of all libraries. Not only that, they are also affiliated with the American Library Association (ALA). As you well know, we have a giant crush on all things library, so we couldn’t help but get involved.
And this crush is not simply an infatuation. We like you for more than just your looks and books, NYLA. We love and support you because your libraries are a cultural hub for communities across the state; providing resources, opportunities, and growth to the public. We’re a passionate group of people who want to enrich lives with language and culture, and we love working with you to accomplish just that. So when it comes to Library Advocacy Day, count us in.
But after February 26th comes and goes, you’ll still be seeing a lot of us. We’ll be in your libraries, providing cutting edge and loveable digital language-learning resources, we’ll be listening to your user feedback and mapping our plans accordingly, we’ll be at the annual NYLA show in the fall (we’re counting down the days), meeting and greeting and handing out brightly colored freebies. We do all this in alignment with your efforts to strengthen your communities, provide new resources to patrons, and support your stellar learning initiatives. Mango loves libraries, and NYLA, you’ve got a special place in our hearts.
We’re rooting for your continued success and exceptional service to your communities. And if you’re looking for a new twist to your campaigns this year, why not make your case in a few different languages, courtesy of Mango? Rumor has it you can access over 60 fun and easy language courses with your library card – and you’ve got one of those, right?
Viva las bibliotecas, viva NYLA!
