Happy Flag Day! A salute to Old Glory. Find more great images in the Library’s Digital Gallery
Happy Flag Day! This wonderful photo - located in our digital gallery - is of the original American flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write “The Star-Spangled Banner.” A first edition of the national anthem is currently on exhibit at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building in Gottesman Hall. We can’t think of a better way to spend such a patriotic day!
But, even if you can’t make it out to the Library today, you can show your support for the Library and use your democratic voice to oppose NYC’s proposed budget cut. Visit takeaction.nypl.org.
