Here’s more from Bookable:

Once again libraries in the five boroughs are facing historic budget cuts. This year’s budget is proposing a $106 million cut for libraries. Should these cuts go through more than sixty neighborhood libraries across the city will be forced to close and services and hours at the remaining libraries will be slashed. More than a thousand library workers will be let go and public services including budgets for new books and materials will be severely cut.
