Citizen Advisory

The Citizen's Advisory Council of the Andrew Heiskell Library

The Citizen's Advisory Council meets periodically to discuss issues of importance to the library and its users. If you are a patron of the library, and its services and programs are important to you, you should consider attending future meetings.

All individuals registered for services from the Andrew Heiskell Library are eligible to be members of the Citizen's Advisory Council. In addition, the parents or guardians of children under the age of sixteen may be members.

All meetings are held at the library at 40 West 20th Street in Manhattan. If you are unable to travel to the library due to a disability, you may designate another person to represent you at meetings. All meetings are open to the public, so you may be accompanied by a parent, guardian, other relative, caregiver, or friend.

Think about attending future Council meetings. Show your support for your library, learn more about library services and programs, meet members of the staff, and provide your ideas and insights on ways to improve the library's programs and services.

All library patrons are welcome to attend. Light refreshments are served. 

Please call the library at (212) 206-5400 or (212) 206-5458 (TTY), or e-mail the library at to be placed on the mailing list for announcements of future meetings.
