The New York Observer – “Absent a famous last name, or a fancy job, or an award-winning book, or simply a boatload of cash, a New York Public Library board position is a long shot for even the most devoted bibliophile. But what about â€¦ Brooklyn?”
The Brooklyn Public Library wants to acquire a building by using eminent domain.
"In what would be a first in the United States, the Brooklyn Public Library hopes to team up with Netflix to deliver DVDs and videos to anyone in the borough with a library card, The Post has learned. The price would be unbeatable – free."
But, keep reading and you’ll see….
"Netflix spokesman Steve Swasey said he knew nothing about a possible partnership with the library and seemed surprised by the news."
Doh! I hope that this deal doesn’t fall through and get the hopes up of the many library users in Brooklyn. Fingers crossed.
Update: Michael has more.
