Get $4 Off Ice Skating Rentals for Kids!


Throughout January, Citi Pond® at Bryant Park™ — NYC’s first and only free-admission skating rink — offers library cardholders who are 17 and under a reduced skate rental price of $10 per rental (a 30% discount from the usual $14) as part of its "Read To Skate" program.  

In addition, as part of a new program to embrace the city’s young readers and celebrate its beloved authors, Citi Pond will host special events at the rink.

To get the special $10 rental price, skaters must show their New York City library cards (from The New York Public Library, Brooklyn Public Library or Queens Library) to rink staff at the Citi Pond Skating Pavilion, located in Bryant Park, on 40th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues.
