Be Prepared for Hurricane Irene
Due to the anticipated severe weather conditions, all units of The New York Public Library (covering The Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island) will be closed on Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28, 2011. It is expected that all locations will be open on Monday, August 29, but New Yorkers are encouraged to check nypl.org for the most up to date information.
Before settling in for the storm, be sure to stop into one of our libraries to pick up something to read. (Or visit ebooks.nypl.org from the comfort of your home.) Try following the Twitter hashtag #stormreads for suggestions! Below are resources from city and emergency agencies for information about the storm and how to best prepare.
