Library Budget Cuts Could be Steep
Thanks to Brenda of Crazy Stable for bringing this to my attention on Facebook. She wrote, “Holy crap!!! I had no idea the library was facing cuts this deep. Even if it is just ritualistic bureaucratic budget brinksmanship (RBBB), we Brooklynites still need to stand up and scream…”
Indeed, the Brooklyn Public Library could face a cut of $27 million to their city funding on June 30, 2012, which represents a nearly 1/3 reduction to their current budget.
That’s massive. If the Library closes its doors, you will lose access to books, free computers and WiFi service;
job search assistance; story time activities; technical skill programs; and cultural events.
