The New York Public Library is opening 62 branches on Nov. 2 from 11 am. to 5 p.m. That’s seven more branches than we were able to open on Nov. 1. The complete list of open branches can be seen on our website. Stop by, charge up your phone, use the Internet, read a book, talk to your neighbors and enjoy free programming (in fact, many branches are adding programs for children and teens, since they don’t have school). The 55 branches open yesterday were packed full of people - this photo from our Inwood branch, for example, shows a jammed community room, full of kids and parents listening to stories. This is the scene at all of our libraries, so come on down and join us. Please be aware, our servers are down due to power outages, so services will vary location to location (for example, some patrons may not be able to check out new materials). We will continue to combat power outages to get our servers back online and all of our locations open - stay tuned here for the latest.
