NYPL’s Fort Washington Library made the news earlier this year when it received an overdue book. A 54-year-old overdue book! After its 15 minutes of nationwide fame, the branch continues to be a local celebrity every day. So why not stop by and sign a letter to support this branch and its fellow libraries throughout the three boroughs. You can help us stop the City’s proposed $47 million dollar budget cut!
This beautiful photo of the first floor of Fort Washington Library is currently on display on Mid-Manhattan Library’s third floor. And at the same library on June 1st, you can meet photographer Elizabeth Felicella and hear all about her experiences photographing the public libraries in all five boroughs.
