Library lovers…there’s a campaign going on over at Facebook to get Oprah Winfrey to acknowledge the current plight of libraries sometime during the last season of The Oprah Show. If you’re a facebook member, please sign up and tell your friends too…in less than two weeks, the group has grown to over 1200 members. Wouldn’t it be great to have Oprah do a series of shows at a variety of libraries and demonstrate how valuable our libraries are to our communities?
Please sign up at Oprah, Libraries Need You, ask your blog readers to do so and your library patrons too…we need to make an impact in numbers.
Taken from the Facebook group:
“We are calling on all New Yorkers to write postcards to the New York City Council to show their love for and support of New York City’s public libraries.
The purpose of the Save NYC Libraries Postcard Campaign is to unite library staff and community members in support for New York City’s public library systems (Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library, and Queens Library) and in opposition to the proposed budget cuts for the next fiscal year.
While we understand that New York City is facing a difficult economic climate, we believe that public library service must be strengthened, not dismantled, in order to serve the diverse educational and informational needs of New York City residents.
We want our voice to stand out and apart from mass-produced advocacy campaigns. We believe that personalized, mailed physical items carry greater weight with our elected representatives than a virtual petition or a Facebook group.
We are actively working to partner with interested community groups to Save NYC Libraries. Please contact us if your group or organization would like to sponsor the Save NYC Libraries Postcard Campaign.
SEND ALL POSTCARDS TO
Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer
47-01 Queens Boulevard, Suite 205
Sunnyside, NY 11104
Thank you for your support! Together we can raise our voices and make ourselves heard!”
