The Uni Project Brings Pop-Up Reading Rooms to NYC!
The Uni Project’s network of staff and volunteers frequently teams up with local community organizations and libraries to bring books to underserved neighborhoods. They thrive in part on donations by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Hall of Science, 826NYC, and others.
The point is to read and enjoy books in public with others. People are transformed into readers on a kind of stage, and neighborhoods are transformed into places where the value of reading and learning is recognized, promoted, and shared. (PW)
