Save the 92Y Library!

The Buttenwieser Library at the 92nd St. Y has been serving a variety of patrons for almost 80 years. Now they have decided to close the library's doors because (per their uninformative letter) "the impact of technology on the way people use libraries and access information has been profound; libraries around the country and around the world are rethinking their operations." These are regurgitated words that are not representative of the actual Y Library users; they are a cop-out for an economically-charged decision that will hurt thousands of users in the neighborhood. From senior citizens to job-seekers to after-school students with limited learning resources, the community will be permanently affected by this decision; a lifelong tradition of and commitment to individual attention and outstanding public service spanning a broad range of users will end if we do not make our voices heard NOW.
