Friends of Greenpoint Library Meeting Today at 3pm

Friends-of-Greenpoint-Library_500With the amount of information available online, it’s easy to take our libraries for granted. Did you know that at one point the idea of a “library” didn’t even exist? Ben Franklin was hosting regular meetings with a group of friends (Junto), where they would discuss politics, philosophy and morality. During these meetings, the members would exchange books and information, and ultimately inspired Franklin’s plans for a public library. Fast forward a few centuries and now we have 87 public libraries in NYC, with one of them right here in Greenpoint.

Friends of Greenpoint Library is hosting a meeting where you can meet neighbors, brainstorm on ideas, and help find ways to support the Greenpoint Library (107 Norman Ave).

DATE: Today, April 9th
TIME: 3pm
LOCATION: Greenpoint Library (107 Norman Ave)
