NYPL is bringing reading to the streets! Starting Tuesday, we’re opening an outdoor reading room on the plaza of the 42nd Street Library on Fifth Avenue. We welcome you to visit, enjoy reading our staff picks, and take a photo in front of a backdrop of the Rose Main Reading Room!

This isn’t the first time we’ve brought the library outside. In the summer of 1935, NYPL created an open-air reading room in Bryant Park so that patrons could enjoy their selections in the sun and fresh air! #ireadeverywhere
