The Library should carry the name of the neighborhood as it does in most every other neighborhood!

Just like other Library's have the name of the city it resides in it shouldn't be any different with Nubian Library.

It is a new day! It's time for us to look out and do for ourselves, to encourage racial self esteem for no man or woman can raise no higher than its people

The library Board wrote the Nubian Coalition that there would be a community meeting before the Library would be given a name. They lied! The went ahead and named it Roxbury Library without Community input!

Thanks for adding your voice.

I fought for the square to be renamed. The people voted for the square to be renamed. The bus station was renamed as a result of the square’s name change and the people’s wish for us to embrace the name Nubian and what it represents to us. Every library I know in our surrounding neighborhoods are named after their square. I believe that’s what the people want, that our library in Nubian Square be named The Nubian Library. We had A Nubian Notion Inc. for 50 years in the square. Now we have Nubian Square and Nubian Station. Let’s make it complete with Nubian Library and honor the people Who held the square down for decades and hopefully for many more to come.
