Is your library connected to mass transit?

This question just came to me as I was drafting the advocacy chapter for my book.

Can we change the world? Is your library available to people who don’t drive?

I think this time when we are all thinking about the climate, I think it’s time to reintegrate people who don’t drive into our communities.  Let’s stop privileging the car.

Because I work for CUNY my library is easy to get to by mass transit.  My local public library is a 1/2 mile from my house, so I walk. I know there is a bus run by the Senior Center, but what about the other people who don’t drive?

I’m up for starting this conversation.
