Your Library Needs You Right Now
It only takes a minute

Libraries here are busier than ever. I see it at my neighborhood branch, Epiphany. It’s hard to find a seat
some days. The libraries need more money to keep up with the demands. They need more books. They need more computers. I think they need more hours, too. Some days they don’t open till noon. That’s crazy, in the cultural capital of the world.

There are form letters in the entrance to my branch now that they ask you to please sign. They are to convince the Mayor and City Council to increase funding for libraries in the next budget. You can find them at your branch, or you can sign online at NYPL.org. It takes a minute at most. Do it now, before you forget.  It’s your town.
