"Preserve Newark Libraries" Performance

I asked "Is there anything I can do?" I want to stress the importance of libaries to the people especially in my community. Due to budget cuts, libraries are listed under "Other" which makes them not as important or worth saving. I want to change that idea. They are a major benefit to the people, young and old. Hours are cut and branches are closing in my hometown of Newark, NJ. Pretty soon, there may not be anymore at the rate it's going. I feel upset because as a child and up until now ther library has helped me. I want the children to have the same luxury I had growing up. One way to assure that we can keep them active is that people in the community sign-up for library cards and use them as often as possible. I volunteered to perform during their Library Card Sign-Up Day. The people enjoyed me and how I'm trying to bring some light to this issue. I believe what I am doing will help raise awareness and make change. I believe Michael Jackson would have done it as well.
