It’s that time of year and unfortunately, the threat of budget cuts looms, and NYC libraries are in trouble. Last year, I wrote a similar blog post: Help NYC Libraries and here I am again… asking for some help for our beloved NYC libraries.
Urban Librarians Unite and Save NYC Libraries have a few advocacy events, and one in particular that is going on this Saturday, June 4th, at 2 pm exactly. 400 people will be needed to pull off this event, so if you are reading this, and you are in the NYC area, or can be in the NYC area this Saturday, please come out and lend a hand — and be apart of the Hug the Library event: http://tinyurl.com/4xu8not
Read more about it here: Hug The Library
There’s also the We Will Not Be Shushed 24 Hour Read IN and for those who can’t make it to these events, there’s the Blog IN (you can easily share this blog post with friends, and you will have helped out, it’s that easy.)
For more information about any of these events, visit the website: Save NYC Libraries
Also, if you haven’t done so already — please contact your elected officials to keep NYC libraries open and funded, here are the links to do so (see, I make it easy for ya!)
