Support Your Local Library
For the underprivileged communities of New York City, including that which Praxis targets, the Public Library System is an invaluable resource.
Through the Library System, individuals can access a wide variety of educational and vocational services as well as the library’s vast (and free) collection of books and multimedia.
Due to the current economic crisis, the library system is facing massive budget cuts by the State which will impact the community for the worse, especially in terms of library services. Jobs and services are in jeopardy.
Please visit your local library’s website (www.nypl.org , www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org www.queenslibrary.org ) and follow the link which directs you on how to contact your local officials to protest these cuts.
