You already know that libraries are nowhere close to becoming obsolete — despite the fear-mongering you might see in some news outlets.In fact, more people visit New York City’s libraries than all of the City’s local sports teams and City-owned museums, performing arts centers, botanical gardens, zoos and historical sites combined.
Recently, the City has stepped up with an increased budget for libraries — and while that’s great news, government funding will still only cover a portion of Library expenses. We rely heavily on the support of individual donors like you. Please help to make sure we can still provide the books and services our community depends on.
We count ourselves lucky that we have you.
Editor’s note: I’m in a library as I write this post. I was in a library when I came with the idea for Harlem World Magazine and our print magazine is the cousin of the printed book. Supporting your local library is an investment in yourself, your kids, your family and small businesses who do research to become better on your block like Harlem World Magazine.
