Saving Libraries



I was sent a link this morning to a website that is trying to save New York Libraries. I figured the blog would be a great outlet to get the word out there :).

This website is specifically for NY Libraries, but I'm sure there are plenty of other states that have done the same thing. Please let me know if you have links to other "Save our Libraries" websites.

I do enjoy the section of the NY website that has pictures taken by librarians that represent what a "day in the library" is like. I may have to take some through mine and submit them.

But if you have a moment, please take a look at the information over there - especially if you live in New York!!

Here's a couple of other states:
Michigan
Illinois
Ohio
Philadelphia (city specific, obvs.)
Pennsylvania

Do you know of more??

Thanks for the link Emily. I will definitely pass it along to the staff at my library (we're in Westchester) :-)

I'm in CA but hope the NY libraries are saved. I don't know what I'd do without ours! Libraries are paradise for us booklovers!

I'm an Ohio librarian and we had a major campaign to save Ohio libraries this past summer. Recently a lot of Ohio libraries successfully passed levies so the situation is starting to look a little brighter here. I hope that the campaign will be successful for you too.

On an unrelated note, here is an award for your blog.
