FCGL:How long have you been a librarian?
MP: I worked for a family literacy program in Juneau, Alaska for three years and one of the highlights for our families was getting a library card. It puzzled me they did not take advantage of the library before as I used them every chance I got and knew they had so much to offer. And it dawned on me this was my perfect job: incorporating my love of books, my passion for promoting literacy, and my goals for public service. I’m so proud of the institution of the public library too: a place where all are welcome.
This year through the PB process community resident Ira Tolbert worked to include a project that would commit $75,000 to new computers in both the Carroll Gardens and Windsor Terrace branch libraries.
The PB vote was this past weekend, and the library project came in third among the top six vote getting projects! So, working with the BPL, Councilman Lander will dedicate these funds to purchasing the computers for both branches.
Thank you Ira for all your hard work and Councilman Lander, who spearheaded the participatory budgeting process. This new technology will serve both of our neighborhoods for years to come.
