Brooklyn Heights-based Citizens Defending Libraries rallied in Manhattan last Friday to stop public policy of defunding libraries in order to sell real estate to private developers. The group has several upcoming activities to keep the ball rolling that local citizens can be involved in:
• Wednesday, March 13, 10:00 AM: Join the District Council 37 Local 1930 New York Public Library Guild Rally on the steps of City Hall for an immediate change to a permanent baseline funding for New York City’s libraries.
• Saturday, March 16, 2:00 – 4:00 PM: Canvassing outside Brooklyn Heights Branch and Business and Career Library (weather reasonably permitting).
• Sunday, March 17, 4:00 PM: Progressive Community Building Event, Brooklyn Heights (Clark & Monroe) Petition signers are invited to click on the link to sign up for this event (on Moveon.org) where next steps in our campaign will be discussed.
