  3. RIP, Robin Williams. We are forever thankful for all that you gave to the world of performing arts. Your inspirational performances in countless films made us laugh, made us cry, and made us think. In his honor, the Library is sharing this image from the Billy Rose Theatre Collection at our Library for the Performing Arts. Rest easy, Mr. Williams.

  5. The Library’s #ireadeverywhere campaign has reached new heights - and just in time for Caturday. Brian (Twitter handle @brianlinek) shared this amazing image of himself reading To Kill A Mockingbird, up a tree, with (we presume) his beloved, scheming cat. We can’t decide which part of this photo we like best. It’s just, well, purrrrfect. Thank you for sending it, Brian! And happy Caturday, all! Want to share your love of reading (and your favorite reading spot)? Join our #ireadeverywhere campaign (just like LeVar Burton and Hillary Clinton and Mindy Kaling and Jim Parsons, to name a few) and share with us where you read. Maybe you’ll inspire someone else to pick up a book and start an adventure (one that does not actually involve killing birds of any kind, of course)!

  8. Hilary Clinton submitted a great #ireadeverywhere photo, adding: “For #ireadeverywhere w/ @NYPL, I’m reminded of moments reading to Chelsea when she was little. Let’s #closethewordgap.” We couldn’t agree more.

  9. The rest of The Big Bang Theory cast was so inspired by Jim Parsons’ #ireadeverywhere photo that they decided to contribute their own! Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch have sent in pictures from the hair and makeup chair and a “jungle or mall”. Show us where you read!
