Dear Mayor de Blasio, Speaker Mark-Viverito, and Council Member,

Thank you for investing in our city’s libraries. By committing $110 million in funding for our library systems in next fiscal year’s budget, you have helped libraries—and the people who rely on them—take a major step forward.

The library systems will be able to address critical repair and maintenance needs at branches across the city, so that New Yorkers like me have bright, inviting, and inspiring places to learn and thrive.

Thank you for investing in libraries—and all New Yorkers. We know that we can count on your steadfast support of our libraries and our communities.
