Fighting for Better Funding, Library Seeks Vote of Confidence

The Roosevelt Island Library is asking for your help.

Our local branch of the New York Public Library is joining in a letters campaign to persuade the political powers-that-be to provide more funding for New York City’s libraries.

The goal is 1,000 letters from Roosevelt Island. It’s important here so that, in three years, our library will have the funding it needs to open the doors in its new location. That should be an easy goal, considering the fact that the Green Roof for PS/IS 217 easily won the competition in recent Participatory Budgeting award with 362 votes from Islanders who had to go to a specific location to cast a vote. 

You can sign a letter at the local branch, or sign it online here. At the branch, you can also buy a $5 t-shirt (S, M, L, XXL) with the Invest in Libraries logo.
