The petition, addressed to the New York City Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio, calls the 2014 proposed budget “inadequate” and demands a budget increase totalling $65 million for all three public library systems combined.
Mayor De Blasio has not proposed an increase in the budget, which had been reduced three years prior. The City Council has requested a $35 million increase.
