Brooklyn Public Library Lending Job-Seekers A Hand. (Brooklyn Eagle, 9/30/2011)
Excerpt: Thanks to $4 million in grants, Brooklyn residents in eight low-income neighborhoods now have access to state-of-the-art computer centers, as well as computer training, job assistance and other services at their local libraries.
A large portion of the funding, $3.25 million, came from the Leon Levy Foundation, and is the biggest private donation ever bestowed upon the Brooklyn Public Library (BPL). The rest of the funding came from the Federal government and New York City.
