Addabbo Hosts Library Rallies
With New York City libraries losing so much funding, City Councilman Joseph Addabbo, Jr. has decided to hold local rallies and asked residents to petition the mayor’s office.
"You are being shortchanged," he told the crowd outside the Peninsula Branch on 92 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard, on Tuesday. Addabbo said cutbacks could get even worse, and that people should voice their opposition before libraries lose even more funding.
Libraries, he said, are important because they welcome everyone, regardless of age and background.
