According to Jennifer Maloney, "The New York Public Library, responding to outcry over its plans to demolish century-old book stacks, will this fall unveil a new design that preserves a significant portion of them, its president, Anthony Marx, said Tuesday."
"The library still intends to build a new circulating library in the 80,000-square-foot space under the Rose Main Reading Room," she adds. "But in contrast to renderings released in December, which envisioned a vast atrium, the new design will incorporate the stacks as 'a prominent feature,' Mr. Marx said."
