Urgent Budget Decision: Tell City Leaders We Need More Library Funding
This petition had 8,425 supporters
Time is running out for the City to make a decision on next year’s budget. They’ll soon decide whether our libraries will receive enough funding to meet the increasing demand for books, programs, and classes – or whether New Yorkers will have to make do with a budget stretched too thin.
The library budget has been cut 11 times in the last six years, yet demand for library services has increased astronomically.
In the short time we have before the city budget is finalized, tell Mayor de Blasio, Speaker Mark-Viverito, and the City Council that New Yorkers deserve more books, more computers, more classes, and more hours — in short, that we deserve more funding for libraries.
