Sunset Park Library to Receive Commerce Bank Grant

Here's a reason to stop hating on banks for a day or two - or maybe for all of National Library Week (that's April 13th - 19th, in case you didn't know). Commerce Bank is celebrating National Library Week with gifts to 50 neighborhood libraries across the USA. It seems that the Sunset Park branch is the ONLY branch in the area to receive the $4,000 grant. I hope the library uses it well. It can be used for books, technology, or programs the library already has set-up. The total grants awarded equal $200,000. Seems like a drop in the bucket to a bank like Commerce, but it's a nice gesture. Here's the press release, if you're into that sort of thing.

Yay and congratulations Sunset Park Library!

I recently moved to Sunset Park and I love it. The library has always been a favorite Brooklyn landmark. It is huge and has a lot of culture surrounding and seeps curious minds inside.

Onwards with literacy,
