Support the New York Public Library

Librarians will read stories and sing songs related to New York City, libraries, and civic responsibility at the free outdoor event, happening right outside a New York City landmark on May 29, 2019 at 10:30 am. Kids who participate will receive free "Invest in Libraries" t-shirts (while supplies last).

Right now, lawmakers are debating the city budget, and are proposing a cut to public libraries that would impact hours, programs, and staffing. The story time right outside their door will remind the Mayor and City Council how important libraries are to New Yorkers, including and especially our youngest!

Please RSVP to participate: while the story time will start at 11 AM, it is important to arrive at 10:30 AM to gain admittance to the City Hall plaza.
