The top of the NYPL’s online pledge, launched Jan. 16, asks the mayor and City Council to generally support the library, praising the good it does for the city. But farther down, the letter calls for “a renovated central branch library” — with no mention that two branches, including the Mid-Manhattan Library, would be sold off to create it” (via New York Post)
