2009 has been a challenging year for many Brooklynites. Through it all, Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) has seen a record number of people use our free resources and services to help them achieve their dreams. But, with a current budget shortfall of $7 million and the possibility of more cuts in the future, we need your help.
Please consider making a generous year-end gift to BPL. For a 2009 tax deduction, make your contribution by December 31. Your gift will help BPL provide:
- Free tutors and after-school programs
- More than 600 workshops to help jobseekers
- Books, DVDs, and literary and cultural programs for families
- Computer and internet access for new Americans and those without home computers
Please donate online now. You can also make a donation by phone at 718.230.2738.
Brooklynites depend on their libraries, and we rely on your support to help deliver the high quality library service that every Brooklyn resident needs and deserves.
Thank you and all the best in 2010!
