To combat the proposed 17% budget cut, the Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) has begun a "Support Our Shelves" campaign meant to put the power of re-invigorating the BPL back into the hands of Brooklynites. The "Brooklyn Vanguard", the BPL's young professionals crowd, is hosting a party (with a purpose!) at the Franklin Park Bar and Beer Garden with this goal in mind.
The details are as follows:
Thursday, May 14, 2009
Franklin Park Bar and Beer Garden
618 Saint Johns Place (near Franklin Avenue)
Brooklyn, NY 11238
Please consider attending, and invite your friends. You can get further information here and here.
