Great News for NYC!
Thank you for making your voice heard for NYC’s public libraries! Thanks to you—and thousands of your fellow New Yorkers—the proposed budget cuts to libraries have been fully reversed.
We are tremendously grateful to Mayor Eric Adams and Speaker Adrienne Adams for being true champions of libraries and the people of New York City. In addition, we thank Finance Chair Justin Brannan, Libraries Chair Chi Ossé, the Budget Negotiating Team, and the entire City Council for their wholehearted support for public libraries.
Amid unprecedented attempts to ban books and silence diverse voices, New York City has sent a clear message about the power of public libraries that will be seen and felt across our nation.
Thank you again for signing a letter—your support matters. Join us in thanking NYC’s leaders for prioritizing public libraries and the critical services they provide.
The New York Public Library has locations in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island. The boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens are each served by their own library systems, Brooklyn Public Library and Queens Public Library.
