Looking for a way to support the Bed-Stuy community? Here’s a great opportunity: the Macon Library is looking for support. Here’s their message:
My name is Ellen Weaver and I am the children’s librarian at the Macon branch of the Brooklyn Public Library located at 361 Lewis Avenue between Halsey and Macon street. I am reaching out to let you know that the library is looking for locals who are interested in becoming Friends of Macon Library and I though that your page would be a great resource to get the word out. The mission of the Friends Group is to advocate, engage, support, and fundraise for the library. We truly believe that there is something for everyone at the library and we want to make the library the best it can possibly be, but we can’t do this without the input, talent, and dedication from the Bed-Stuy community. You can find us here on Facebook or give the library at call at 718-573-5606 to be added to our Friends interest list.
There has been so much concern about how to engage after the recent election, and this seems like an excellent way to donate your time to the community and support things–like public libraries–that are already great assets in our city and country. Thank you for considering!
