Let's Open the Black Rock Branch!!!!

Work on the Black Rock Branch Library is almost finished! After 6+ years, the impending opening seems like a dream for neighborhood residents. Although the money to finish the construction was in place before our economy tanked, funding for programming, materials, and staff has been sharply cut. As a strong neighborhood community, Black Rock residents and friends are hoping to come together to endow the branch library.
