Advocacy Toolkits: New York Public, Brooklyn, and Queens Public Libraries


NYPL needs your help to stop a proposed $43 million cut.

To help spread the word, find your library branch via the link above, download the letter urging elected officials to reverse the funding cut, then print off copies and distribute them to your friends, family, neighbors or classmates. You can return the letters to any NYPL branch.

Use the Brooklyn Public Library? BPL could face a cut of $27 million this month,  representing a reduction of close to nearly 1/3 of their current budget. Learn more about the city budget issue by reading the Library’s preliminary budget testimony and executive budget testimony to the City Council. Most importantly, don’t forget to email your elected officials!

Hey Queens! With a proposed cut of over 31% from current funding levels, this budget proposal could devastate public library service in your community. Speak up now.
