Already with NYPL, Seward Park Gains a ‘Little Free Library’
Seward Park just gained a new library … in the shadow of another. And one that won’t nab you for late fees.
Over the weekend, the Seward Park Conservancy unveiled the Seward Park Little Free Library. It’s a wee weatherproof cubby next to the small children’s playground inside the park, and operates on the standard “take a book, leave a book,” honor system.
A handful of organizations and community groups, such as the Chinese-American Planning Council and students from the High School for Dual Language and Asian Studies, were involved in the installation.
This spot in the plaza of the Seward Park NYPL branch is one of many such constructions around the city. Little Free Library is a nonprofit founded in 2009 that aims to inspire a love of reading through makeshift structures.
