Meet New York's New 'Subway Library'
Audrey Wachs reports: "Instead of staring vacantly into a phone on the train, the MTA and New York City’s three public library systems would like straphangers to bury their noses in e-books, gratis."
"Starting today, the New York Public Library, the Brooklyn Public Library and the Queens Library will be offering hundreds of free short stories, books, and books excerpts for download through each station’s wireless network," adds Wachs.
To promote the so-called "Subway Library," the MTA even redecorated the interior of one train on the E and F lines to resemble he Rose Main Reading Room at the New York Public Library’s main branch on 42nd Street. Wachs has more on the program in the source article, as does the video below.
