BROOKLYN - Libraries in Brooklyn could be in jeopardy of closing or losing services due to proposed city budget cuts.

The Brooklyn Public Library could face $25.2 million in funding cuts from the city at the end of June.

The cuts would mean that some libraries could close. Those that remain open would have reduced hours. There would also be fewer books, DVDs and CDs, in addition to cutbacks in programs.

Employees at the Brooklyn Public Library are encouraging people to email Mayor Michael Bloomberg and City Council members letting them know how they feel about the proposed cuts.
