On Monday, October 28th at 8:00 in morning, Toshokan family had relaxing breakfast at Haines Cafe. They were reading printed pages of Citizen Defending Libraries.

"Mom, Dad. It is very terrible that Brooklyn Public Library and New York Public Libraries are selling library building to real estate developer and replacing with small libraries in luxury building." Sayaka and Ayaka said together.

Her parent replied, "I complete agreed."

At 8:30, they finish lunch and they walk slowly to Brooklyn Heights Library."

At 8:45, people are already lined up to enter Brooklyn Heights Library.

At 9:00, Toshokan family followed people into a library.

It was beautiful library, but inside was very hot.

They all applied for Brooklyn Public Library card and they look around.

Around 10:00am, they went across to bus stop at Cadmen Plaza, and Sayaka asked a female bus driver, "Excuse me, do you know which bus goes to Atlantic Av-Barclay Center?"

Female bus driver replied, "B41 Limited Bus will take you there." as she pointed to Hybrid Bus sitting near B41 Limited bus bus stop.. I'm next one to leave, so come on board."

10:35, soon Alice's bus pulled over to bus stop across from Atlantic Av-Barclay Center."

As Toshokan family got off, "Thank you, Alice."

Alice replied, "You're welcome. Just be careful crossing Flatbush Av."

As Alice's bus, B41 bus left, they cross street to 110-year-old carnegie Pacific Library.

Ayaka said, "I could understand why Girl Scout's need this library. This library is more beautiful."

They went inside the library and it was beautiful on inside as well. They were shocked to see empty bookshelf.

At 12:00pm, they headed to Atlantic Av-Barclay Center and headed to Midtown's Le Parker Median Hotel to have lunch at famous Burger Joint.
