Library Stories

Ep. 64 "Making a Connection" | Library Stories


Can't get to the library but love to read? Joan Aikens, manager at Eastchester Library, describes an NYPL program to keep dedicated readers connected to the world without having to step outside. It's Books by Mail: reliable, personal, and free to homebound individuals in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island who are temporarily or permanently disabled.

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.
