“Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s proposed budget cuts $40 million from the branches in Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island. Queens and Brooklyn library branches have their own separate budget and are facing their own reductions.”
Libraries open only four days a week - or closed altogether. Book and DVD budgets slashed by 1/3. Thousands of programs and classes gone. Is this the kind of future you want? If not, write your elected officials, because NYPL is facing a $40 million city budget cut that would cripple the system and hurt the New Yorkers who rely on its services more than ever. If you love us, then let the city hear it! Keep libraries open and Find Your Future right now. Pass it on - the Library needs you!
