BPL is proud to open our doors to everyone. But our operating budget is stretched thin. Right now City Leaders are putting their budget recommendations together. And we need your voice as we urge them to strengthen funding for Brooklyn Public Library.

If you’ve been to your local branch, you understand what BPL means to Brooklyn. It is a special place where people can learn, grow and connect with each other and with our community. And it’s a place where everyone who walks through our doors can feel welcome and included.

If you value everything your library adds to your life and our city, now is the time to speak up.

Please use the form below to urge city leaders to increase the budget for public libraries, so that we can improve our spaces, strengthen our programming and expand our collections.

Thank you for your support!

Dear Mayor de Blasio, Speaker Johnson, Majority Leader Cumbo, Libraries Chair Van Bramer, Finance Chair Dromm and your city council member
