NYCPL faces biggest budget cuts in history. Who ya gonna call?!

Via on May 18, 2010

Using Art + Fun to bring attention to Proposed Budget Cuts of New York’s Public Library System.

With thanks for the tip to Boing Boing:

New York Public Library: “We could use all the support we can get right now in changing minds at City Hall.”

For our latest mission, we brought the movie Ghostbusters to life in the reading room of The New York Public Library at 42 Street. The 1984 movie begins with a scene in the very same room, so we figured it was time for the Ghostbusters to make an encore appearance.
