About “NOW: In History!”… This new lecture series brings prominent authors, historians, and experts on New York City History to this LANDMARK BUILDING in Southside Williamsburgh. Each lecture is themed after a historic event which occurred during that month in NYC history.

About the Williamsburgh Library… With imminent Brooklyn Public Library budget cuts topping over $20 Million and a massive borough-wide cutback on library hours and resources, the historic Williamsburgh Library is losing critical funding. This new program series aims to bring the attention of those who love our local history to a public institute deserving of its support.
