More Save the Libraries news, this time from Gloria Forouzan in Lawrenceville. She has started a Facebook group, "Save Our Library 15201."
In an e-mail, she writes:
We have almost 400 members & are growing by the day. Members come
from all over the city, many are college and high school students.
Grassroots supporters from each neighborhood are in frequent contact & agree no divide & conquer - we will not favor one branchs closure over anothers.
Each day more events are added to our list, here are a few:
