Dec. 13 State Assembly Hearing Cancelled – NYPL “Declines to Participate”

We have just received word that the State Assembly has cancelled its long-planned December 13 hearing on the Central Library Plan because “the NYPL has declined to participate.” There is a possibility that the hearing will be rescheduled some time next year.

Why is the NYPL refusing to discuss its plans publicly? When will they produce the promised cost estimates for alternatives to the Central Library Plan? We urge the State Assembly to hold NYPL to its promises, and we urge Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio to keep his pledge to seek alternatives that will protect the 42nd Street and Mid-Manhattan libraries!
