New York libraries help to register to vote

New Yorkers can always count on local libraries. Besides the fact that they can find any information they need, they can also receive help with registration to vote.

There are 216 branches of city libraries across New York. All of them will be able to register voters on the 25th of September.

During the National Voter Registration Day, this Tuesday, on September 25th, libraries of New York are expected to be extremely busy. There will be all the systems of libraries united. Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library, Queens Library, all of them will hold registration drives in their branches.

The initiative will take place in 216 buildings of libraries, in collaboration with the NYC Campaign Finance Board. It will be active during the usual open hours of library buildings. So, it is best to find the schedule on their official pages.

Those people, who wish to register for a vote, don’t have to keep library card for this. Meanwhile, librarians encourage everyone to sign up for the card as well, while still coming to the library. You can always count on many different benefits from this card, like taking books for free, go to some museums for free, and have an access to research materials, and so on.

Some of the libraries are going to show films about the importance of voting. One of them is Selma, the movie about 1965 marches for civil rights.
