Thank you to EVERYONE who made the 2015 24 Hour Read-In a huge success this year.

We had amazing amounts of foot traffic, blew up the mayor’s twitter, and generally had an amazing year of 24 hour advocacy outside of City Hall.

We got great press and a lot of attention from all the right places. Lauren even got to harass the mayor (again, she LOVES doing that).

The time to keep the pressure up is now. Please go to Invest In Libraries and contact your local political leaders as well as the mayor’s office, the City Council, and anyone else who will listen.

We collected HUNDREDS of postcards in just that one day and we are speaking up for tens of thousands of New Yorkers who use the library every day. We need your voices raised in our final push to make strong library budgets a reality.
