The New York Public Library’s Center for Educators and Schools is celebrating back to school with teachers, students, and families across New York City with engaging titles for every age. Whether you’re looking for a picture book to read to your little one in preparation for their first day of school or you’re a teacher searching for professional titles, the Library is here to support you.
On Saturday, August 27th from 10 AM to 3 PM, join The New York Public Library’s Center for Educators and Schools and the United Federation of Teachers for a Back to School Giveaway Celebration for students, educators, and their families. This event will feature storytimes and crafts for families, information for educators, and fun giveaways to get ready for back-to-school! Pick up a free NYPL book bag and grab a book for your home library, too, while supplies last.
