Forgive my cheesy title rhyme, but it's that time of year again! Library advocacy season is in full effect, and as always, NYC libraries are seeking support in order to continue providing essential programs and services to our communities.
If you're a New Yorker, you can send a quick and easy email to your local politicians by clicking on one of the links below, depending on your borough. It's a very simple yet effective way to show that you think libraries are important!
Brooklyn Public Library (You can also donate $ to BPL by clicking here.)
Queens Public Library
NYPL (Manhattan, Staten Island, and the Bronx)
If you don't live in NYC, I encourage you to seek out advocacy opportunities for your local library - there's always something you can do and no action is too small.
To illustrate why it's so important to speak out for libraries, I thought I'd share some of the notes kids at my branch have been writing over the last few weeks - kids always seem to say it best.
(The kid above said "Oh, this is gonna be EASY" when I told him he could write something about why he loves libraries. Also, not to brag, but I'm totally the "she" being referenced.)
Thanks for loving your library, everyone!
