The New York Public Library is moving outside! Well, a portion of it will be when they open their pop-up outdoor reading room, “The Library Inside Out: Read Everywhere.” NYPL President Tony Marx is inviting New Yorkers to take a break and read outside their Fifth Avenue branch from today through August 15th. According to the New York Observer, the library is including the social media campaign, #IReadEverywhere in order to celebrate the power of reading. Post a photo of yourself reading in your favorite NYC places using #IReadEverywhere and you will be in the company of several authors who have already participated.
I would love to see my NYC readers and supporters taking advantage of this program by posting photos of yourselves reading in one of my ... wait for it ... pocket parks! Why not? That’s what many of you do when you’re in NYC parks on your own. I know I love nothing more than a beautiful day in one of these parks, a good book and a coffee or my lunch from a nearby deli.
Enjoy the fleeting summer weather. I look forward to seeing your Twitter posts.
