The Village Voice voted BPL’s Central Library the best in New York! Woo hoo! It’s a great feeling to have had the opportunity to be part of this great place!

Brooklyn Public Library, Central branch


Today at the library we celebrated a mashup (a Monster Diya Mash?) of the upcoming Diwali and Halloween holidays! The materials used were sidewalk chalk and colored sand, to make Rangoli as well as general Halloweeny spookiness.

Fun was had by all who participated.  ( Not to mention the requisite colored-sand-and-chalk-streaked hands)!

P.S. You will notice that our astute Diwalloween witch – a true collaborative creation of the teens, kids, and librarians – loves BOOKS! Don’t be scared. She has a heart of gold.(Or at least, of pink.)

Recently we have been the lucky recipients of some amazing thank you letters from several classes that visited the library. So we thought we’d thank the kids for the presents of their presence at the library. (sorry for the bad pun!) A sample (and my personal favorite) letter is below, along with our display of the other letters.
