Library Stories

Ep. 63 "The Library Card Is Like a Passport" | Library Stories

In a twist on Emily Dickinson's line, "There is no frigate like a book," NYPL patron Jinglu Wang describes using her library card to learn about everything from Chinese literature to New York City history. She has six library cards, including NYPL's, and covers her shelves and tables with a constantly shifting collection of books, systematically arranged to assure they get returned on time!

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.
