Our friends at "Take Action: Save Brooklyn Public Library" just sent us the following message: "There will be a hearing on the impact of the Executive Budget reductions on New York City libraries that begins tomorrow, May 28th, at 12:45pm. There is a public session, which begins at 3:30pm, wherein members of the community may address the council directly (for two minutes) with their concerns. (http://council.nyc.gov/html/calendar/directions.shtml)
***We invite you to come out and voice your support for libraries. We want to fill the Council Chamber with library supporters and ensure that our customers have the opportunity to publicly voice how much BPL means to them.***"
So if you're in the NYC area and not doing anything tomorrow afternoon, why not fill up City Hall with librarians and library supporters. Let's send a clear message to Mayor Bloomberg and the Council that libraries are part of what makes a community strong, vibrant, and well-informed.
