Sunset Park Library Air Conditioning Issue finally getting traction in local press

The Sunset Park Library's lack of air conditioning is finally getting attention in other outlets outside of the neighborhood after three weeks. My first post after five days when I saw there was not going to be a fix may have been the impetus. But I won't take any credit for it. Yesterday a story appeared in the The Brooklyn Paper and today  DNAinfo a website that covers all of New York City picked it up. A temporary fix is due to be in place by next week when the "news" will already be old. However, it's nice to see that the neighborhood is finally getting some attention and people are beginning to realize that things are going on in the nabe besides just the library issue. Is there a chance that one of the three main newspapers will be next on the list? We can only hope..

I can't imagine studying in a library without air conditioning, especially during summer. I hope they get the AC unit fixed. I bet if they called a few good local contractors for a bid, it may end up being less then originally expected.
