NYC is fortunate have over 200 libraries, but it’s no secret that money is tight for these beloved branches. To help combat their struggles, the first annual NYC Neighborhood Library Awards is giving five neighborhood libraries $10,000, so it’s time to tell the world (or at least the Charles H. Revson Foundation) why our branches are a vital part of our community.
Nominations, which can be made online, will be accepted from May 20 through July 1, and according to the awards website, should include “specific examples and personal stories or anecdotes” that explain why your branch should win.
Though our 6th Avenue branch was recently renovated, maybe you think it could still use some help! Or perhaps you’d like to nominate our other local branches, the Central Library and the Pacific Library. Let your voice be heard!
