Hi, it’s me again, advocating for libraries, because they are in trouble.
Here are some of the facts:
The New York Public Library could lose 10 branches, and service cut from 6 to 4 days a week, and other services could be lost as well. Visit this site to write your elected officials, make donations, and more: http://dontclosethebook.nypl.org/
The Queens Library could lose 14 branches, and 400 workers have already received 90-day lay off notices, and many of the free services cut. Visit here and sign the petition: http://www.savequeenslibrary.org/
The Brooklyn Public Library could lose 16 branches, and layoffs of hundreds of employees, limited weekend hours, and more. Visit this site to write your elected officials: https://bpl.brooklynpubliclibrary.org/open/, and donate here:http://www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org/support/shelves/
Additionally, if you aren’t busy this Saturday, May 15, between 10 am-5 pm, please consider stopping by the Love Your Library event at the Central Library, visit here for more information:http://www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org/events/loveyourlibrary.jsp
ALSO, get your postcards together and send them to Save NYC Libraries campaign, join the group on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=108524095853956
PLEASE Write all of your elected officials, especially the mayor, and save all NYC Libraries.
