    July 2012: The Lunch Hour NYC exhibit at the main branch of the New York Public Library.  

    Great photos of our current exhibition, on through February 2013.

  3. An early advertising poster for The Barrier, an Alaskan adventure story written by one Rex Beach and published by “Harper & Brothers, Publishers.” The New York Times called it “a stirring yarn" but complained about its formulaic plot.
From the opening chapter:

Many men were in debt to the trader at Flambeau, and many counted him as a friend. The latter never reasoned why, except that he had done them favors, and in the North that counts for much.

    New York Public Library

  10. During the 36 years that sisters Frances and Terry Ziccardi have been visiting Kingsbridge Library in the Bronx, they have checked out more than 5,000 items.
Along with the new books and ideas that they have discovered at the branch, the sisters have also found a sense of community.
“We love this Library. It’s our second home,” says Frances, who along with her sister comes to the branch at least three or four times a week to find new reading material and see old friends. “Without it we would be lost.”
The duo enjoys discovering contemporary novels and books on art, cooking, crafts, and exercise thanks to the help of Library Manager Martha Gonzalez-Buitrago and other staff members with whom they’ve become friendly.
“The library gives us a sense of community,” says Terry. “It keeps your mind engaged. It’s part of our almost everyday living.”
Free resources for seniors and other essential Library services could be dramatically cut back due to a proposed $43 million reduction in funding for The New York Public Library. Please do your part to protect your branch and the countless patrons who rely on it.
