On Saturday, March 29, Lynn’s Kids International Organization, a non-profit organization for the advancement of underprivileged children, and Citizens Defending Libraries, a group fighting to protect New York City libraries, will meet outside of the 42nd Street Library for a short walk asking our elected officials to protect library branches throughout the city – our public treasures.
New York Public Library and Brooklyn Public Library trustees and leadership are pushing to sell and shrink some of the largest and most successful branches in Manhattan and Brooklyn. They already sold the much-beloved Donnell Library and are busy replacing it with a luxury high rise with a shrunken library in the basement.
We can not let this attack on treasured public assets continue. March with us as we let New Yorkers and our elected officials know we stand to protect libraries, the great nurturers of our society!
