New York City Mayor and Democratic presidential hopeful Bill de Blasio has proposed funding cuts to city libraries and Sarah Jessica Parker is not here for it.
The Sex and the City alum channeled character Carrie Bradshaw in a blistering missive savaging the $11 million funding cut proposal, which would reportedly require shorter hours and fewer library services.
“As Carrie Bradshaw might, I couldn’t help but wonder: Can New York City survive without strong public libraries? Could I, as a New Yorker, accept cuts to our wonderful, important, necessary, and beloved libraries? I’m sorry. I can’t,” she wrote.
“It is not only a regular neighborhood stop for books, programs, and more, it is a cornerstone, a beacon, and one of the most beloved buildings in our community. I don’t know what we’d do without it,” Parker, 54, continued.
Library-goers are right with her, posting hundreds of comments at investinlibraries.org, a website Bradshaw directed them to.
On a happier personal note, Bradshaw and husband Matthew Broderick celebrated their 22nd wedding anniversary, an occasion she marked with a cute throwback pic.
