An SOS For Our Neighborhood Library
By Lillian Gold, Volunteer for the Cathedral Branch Library

As springtime arrives, how wonderful it will be to be sitting in Katharine Hepburn Garden reading a good book. But if the estimated projected city budget goes through as is, there may be 300,000 fewer books. Thus, this SOS is for our neighborhood library – The Terence Cardinal Cooke Cathedral Branch of The New York Public Library, located below ground at the northwest corner of 50th Street and Lexington Avenue. At our last financial meeting of the Borough Advocacy Network, I was told deep cuts in public funding were due to the ongoing fiscal crisis. In response, the library has begun a 3-year Emergency Campaign. The library is asking all of us to help restore these funds to the budget, by writing our elected officials in support of the library, and showing support with an individual contribution of $17 (the average price of a new book). The library has self-addressed envelopes and donation forms – please pick one up. For more information, contact the Cathedral Branch Librarian, Jay Barksdale, 560 Lexington Avenue, NY, NY 10022, 212-752-3824, Thank you.
