The Macon Library in Bed-Stuy has been recognized as the local gem that it is — and is now getting an even greater chance to shine.
The local resource has been selected as one of ten finalists — out of every New York City library — for the first NYC Neighborhood Library Award. It was recognized for its community contributions and commitment to improving the lives of local residents.
It was one of three Brooklyn libraries selected.
The awards are sponsored by the Charles H. Revson Foundation.
“These nominations reveal the passion that New Yorkers have for their neighborhood libraries,” said Julie Sandorf, of the Charles H. Revson Foundation. “Our libraries promote and reflect the promise of our city – evening the playing field for millions of New Yorkers who seek self-improvement.”
The winning libraries will be selected next week, and will receive $5,000 and $10,000 grants.
