We thank everyone who came out to perform and show support for the library: Karen K and the Jitterbugs, author Emily Jenkins, Assemblywoman Joan Millman, Carol Troha, Director of the Cobble Hill Playgroup, and author Mari Takabayashi. Thanks also to New York City Councilman Brad Lander and New York State Senator Daniel Squadron who came by to say hello and show their support and Congresswoman Yvette Clarke who sent a representative to the event. Another important thanks to the staff of the Carroll Gardens branch library, led by Neighborhood Library Supervisor Jeff Schwartz, who helped out all day.
We have lots of other activities and events planned to support our branch. Keep up with all of our activities on our blog and Facebook.com/FriendsofCarrollGardensLibrary. To join FCGL, just come to a meeting and help us organize - our next meeting is Wednesday, June 15 at 6:30 at the library. And don't forget to add your name to the Brooklyn Public Library's petition against budget cuts here and donate to the Support Our Shelves Campaign (you can designate your donation directly to the Carroll Gardens branch to be used for new books) http://www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org/
