1. Happy Caturday! Our #ireadeverywhere campaign has been going just purrrrfectly, with thousands of people - including Jim Parsons, Neil Gaiman, Mindy Kaling, Cookie Monster and Hillary Clinton - participating and sharing their love of reading with the world. We’ve also been getting our fair share of feline photos, including one from best-selling author Dan Brown, and this one from our friends at Reading Rainbow (which has been posting tons of amazing stuff, including a photo from host Levar Burton) - this photo of their graphic designer Luci reading with her kitty. Happy Caturday! And send pics of yourself (and your cat) reading!

  2. We just got an extra-furry #ireadeverywhere update from one of our favorite friends: Cookie Monster! He tells us that he “loves to read at his grandma’s house. After eating cookies, of course.” Sounds good to us! Where do you love to read?

  3. Guess who’s coming to the Library’s landmark 42nd Street building on Friday, Aug. 3? That’s right, Sesame Street's one and only Cookie Monster is joining celeb chef Rocco DiSpirito at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at 10 a.m. for a free cooking demonstration for kids, part of our KidsLIVE series. Rocco will make (and distribute) healthy cookies, teaching children that food can be both healthy AND delicious. Rocco’s Now Eat This! Food Truck (a non-profit venture that sells healthy comfort food to raise money for hungry kids) will be outside the Library selling goodies that day, as well. We are psyched for this event (which is connected to our free Lunch Hour NYC exhibition), as is Cookie Monster, who actually told us, “Oh boy, oh boy! Me so excited!” (he really did - it’s in our press release). Space is limited, so reserve a few slots now!
