Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed a bill into law last week that will expand the Library Card Act.

City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer (D-Sunnyside), who introduced the act in 2010 to put library card applications from the city’s three systems into the city Department of Education’s enrollment packages, had introduced the extension Bloomberg made a law May 1.

Now Queens, New York and Brooklyn library cards will also be distributed through the city Department of Youth and Community Development, the city Administration for Children’s Services, the city Human Resources Administration and the city Department of Homeless Services.
