 Tonight (Wednesday, July 15th) at 6:00 p.m. Brooklyn’s Community Board 2 will vote on the proposed sale and development of the Brooklyn Heights Library on Cadman Plaza West at the corner of Tillary and Clinton Streets.

The CB2 meeting takes place at St. Francis College, Founders Hall, 180 Remsen Street (Court and Clinton streets)in Brooklyn Heights.

Brooklyn Public Library says it needs to sell the library site because it needs millions in repairs, and in order to support at least four other crumbling libraries in Brooklyn. Local opposition to the sale has been vociferous, however. A group called Citizens Defending Libraries has taken the lead, saying, "If the board votes “YES” to approve the proposal it will set the table for future developers to feast on public assets."

More details about the vote and CB2's 3 caveats here.
