  3. We are thrilled about our "Somebody Come and Play" exhibition celebrating 45 of Sesame Street - and it looks like we’re not the only ones! We caught Elmo, Big Bird, and Cookie Monster manning the desk at the Library of Performing Arts, hoping to get a sneak peek of the exhibit, which opens tomorrow!

  4. They taught us to love adventure. They taught us to yearn for the stars, how to be strong, and what it means to have compassion.
We might be all grown up, but the characters from our favorite children’s books will stay with us forever. Which one are you most like?

  5. 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?

Happy birthday, Harry Potter!

We couldn’t think of a cuter way to celebrate Harry Potter’s (and JK Rowling’s) birthday! And we can’t wait to see our friends from Sesame Street at NYPL this fall!

This picture book is a true childhood classic. If only we could all throw on our red onesies and spend this snow day with Peter. Now that’s what I call a good time!

  10. Staying awake to watch the ball drop and bring in the new year is no easy task for most children. We here at the New York Public Library thought it was only fair that the celebration of 2014 start early for the little ones. Join us at the St. George Library Center on December 31st at 12pm, as we host this year’s Noon Year’s Eve Party. We will celebrate with crafts and sparkling apple cider. Hope to see you and your children there!
