  2. The Mets tell us “it’s not just the scouting report Daniel Murphy reads,” he also finds time to read a great story in the locker room! Professional athletes know that you need a strong brain as well as a strong body, so show us where you strengthen your mind! #ireadeverywhere

  4. It’s been a particularly sad week in the world of entertainment - yesterday we lost another star, Lauren Bacall. In addition to a long career as an award-winning actress, she also won the National Book Award for her autobiography By Myself in 1980. We’re honoring her legacy with a compilation of her work on and off the screen. You can also view some rare images of the actress in our digital collection.

  7. 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)!

  10. 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.
