1. Vote for Brooklyn Public Library’s Central Library. Its main entry doors need restoration. Built in 1941, “Central Library is an anchor institution, a modernist landmark, and one of Brooklyn’s most beloved and celebrated civic spaces, welcoming more than one million visitors annually. Its unusual design resembles an open book, with a 50-foot entry portico. As record numbers of Brooklynites are using the library, the care and preservation of the landmark building is an institutional and community priority.”
  2. Urban Librarians Unite needs your ARCs! Galleys!
  3. The UniRead event needs readers. Do you speak Spanish, German, Arabic, Czech, Esperanto, Farsi, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Irish, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, or Polish? C’mon!

Alright, get to it, fearless library activists. Help out or spread the word.

~Love and Save Your Libraries, Ingrid
