Director Briefing - April 24, 2023

Updated Computer Purchasing from Bob

Updated computer purchasing form with new pricing from Dell. The All-In-One computers no longer have an option for CD-ROM/DVD drives, so their price is slightly cheaper. The laptops we offered have increased in price by almost $200, so I chose a new model with slightly lower specs. The new price is $728.71.

The updated form can be found here:

NYLA will soon release its "Free for All" website, a local take on highlighting Intellectual Freedom issues.

State Budget is Late

Today is the deadline for the fourth budget extender approved by the state legislature and signed by the Governor last Thursday. It is expected a fifth will be approved sometime today. Aside from money coming in later from the state, there may be other timing implications that come along with this delay, but we'll know more once we have the final budget amounts.
