In Gentrification's Shadow, a Campground for the Homeless in Brooklyn (NY Times)

The new Brooklyn Heights library - Community Advisory meeting moderated by BPL President (& non-librarian) Linda Johnson  (Brooklyn Eagle)

BPL's Johnson Holds Her Own Against Opponents of Heights Library Plan: Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Roasting Company Named As Retail Tenants (Brooklyn Heights Blog:Dispatches from America's First Suburb):

"BPL is responsible for promoting the literacy for the community in any manner they are comfortable; we want the children of Brooklyn to have strong memories of what a library is about.  BPL President Linda E. Johnson"

No mention in the Johnson-loving Heights blog piece about the reduced square footage of the proposed new library, down to 21,000 square feet from the current 62,000.
