There are now over 8,000 names on the Petition to save New York Libraries from Bloomberg Developer Destruction.  If you haven't already done so, sign it now.  To keep informed on the latest developments in the campaign to stop library destruction, Noticing New York & Citizens Defending Libraries will keep you abreast of things, and link to a perfect quote from Keith:

When you are growing up, there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully: the Church, which belongs to God and the public library, which belongs to you. The public library is a great equalizer.
Keith Richards
Check out part of a NYPL interview with Keith Richards from 2010.  At the beginning of the interview, he talks about the importance of the library.

"It was always like the center of things ... and so it should be."
