Come see the exhibit before it’s over!

Through September 21, one of our own Info Commons Librarians, Phillip Bond, has an exhibit on display in the Central Library Lobby Gallery.

The exhibit, entitled A Moment Preserved, is a mixed-media representation of the Bedford-Stuyvesant community and Macon Library, a literary safe haven that has served this historic neighborhood for 107 years.

Check out this great video and then come see the rest of the exhibit in person!

Sadie Rosenkrantz is like many other Queens residents: she loves to read. She visits her community library in Forest Hills regularly, at least once a week. Sadie celebrated her 104th birthday at the library. Staff honored her with a bouquet, and dedicated two new books to her by a favorite author, James Patterson.

Love it!!
