Library Stories

Ep. 52 "A Better Experience of the World" | Library Stories


Sometimes, it takes a little help to raise your game. Jeremy has worked with his NYPL tutors after school for two years. With more confidence and knowledge, he enjoys doing his homework, and his school has recognized him as most improved. Now Jeremy is thinking big: going to college and getting a job.

Library Stories is a video series from The New York Public Library that shows what the Library means to our users, staff, donors, and communities through moving personal interviews.

I'm happy to be able to donate and help kids like Jeremy. This is the first library story that I have read and it's been great to watch this video cause the Highbridge library is across the street from where I live. So its great to know that I'm helping a lot of kids with my contributions including someone that lives within the same neighborhood as me.
