“They call me the signature queen of Staten Island,” said Rosalind Gutierrez, 39, as she arrived on Wednesday at the Hylan Plaza shopping center clutching four clipboards to her chest and a fistful of pens.

She stood outside the entrance to the Dollar Tree discount store (“Everything’s $1.00”) and with a hawker’s cry announced that she was collecting signatures on forms decrying possible city budget cuts to the libraries.

The first wave of shoppers avoided her, but Ms. Gutierrez repeated, “No money, no addresses, we’re just collecting signatures.” She was soon swarmed by shoppers muttering in outrage that, good grief, why would anybody would want to close libraries?
