Former Fordham Library to become animal shelter

November 18, 2008 08:45AM

The city plans to turn the former Fordham Library in the Bronx, at Bainbridge Avenue and Fordham Road, into an animal shelter, and residents are angry it won’t become a community center. Community leaders said they have been trying to convince the city to turn the building into a youth center for over a year. The city was required by law to have a licensed, full-service animal shelter in each borough by 2006, but the Bronx still doesn’t have one, and now the animal shelter plan could be put on hold due to budget cuts.
