Representatives from the Queens Public Library system are fighting city officials to ensure that likely cuts aren’t too severe.
They are aggressively undertaking a petition drive, both within each library and online.
The following petition form is on http://www.savequeenslibrary.org
Queens Library is currently facing a severe reduction in city funding. Over the last three years, the library has already sustained difficult cuts, and combined with the current proposals, it would amount to a staggering 27% reduction in our funding.
Such losses will have a truly devastating impact. Libraries in every part of the borough could be closed four and five days per week; one third of programs could be slashed, and hundreds of library employees could lose their jobs.
We cannot let this happen!
