Special Feature - Blog: Underground NY Public Library

Since 2008 Ourit at Underground NY Public Library have been sharing pictures of readers on the trains and platforms of the New York City subway. Every day, except for Saturday, she gives us photographic evidence that people do still read, and read widely, and this makes for an uplifting message for a hopeless bibliophile such as myself.
From the library's Facebook page: "The Underground New York Public Library is a visual library featuring the Reading-Riders of the NYC subways. This library freely lends out a reminder that we’re capable of traveling to great depths within ourselves and as a whole."
Well said.
