The New York Public Library Highlights Essential Service Following "Branches of Opportunity" Report Issued by Center for an Urban Future


The New York Public Library has issued the following remarks from NYPL President Tony Marx in response to  the Center for an Urban Future's report "Branches of Opportunity":

"This important, independent report by the Center for an Urban Future highlights what the city's three library systems have been saying for years - that we are an essential and incomparable part of the city's educational infrastructure. As the report states, the free social and educational services that we provide are needed now more than ever and are critical to the success of our communities. We appreciate the hard work that went into the report and its conclusions, and look forward to a future in which we can continue to do even more to serve the people of New York City."
