We Did It

Today the City Council restored $25 million dollars of a potential $27 million dollar cut to Brooklyn Public Library.

This means that BPL will  "maintain existing service levels and avoid layoffs,"
as stated by our President and CEO Linda Johnson. 

I am very tired and emotionally drained (for this and other reasons) so I just want to simply
say thank you to anyone who signed the petitions, tweeted about the cuts, checked out a book - ANYTHING to support NYC libraries and this cause. Thank you. I hope we do not to have to do this again next year, but it's comforting to know that people are on the side of libraries. 

Now to sleep.
