Help the Brooklyn Public Library

Just heard through the BPL site that the city plans to cut $17.5 million from the BPL’s budget. According to their site, the drastic results of that will be to:

  • ELIMINATE as many as 272 positions – that’s one out of every four full-time BPL employees.
  • REDUCE service to five days a week at most neighborhood libraries – with limited weekend hours.
  • BUY 185,000 FEWER books, DVDs and CDs

You can send a note to your council member here.
