The Donnell Library is going to be demolished–and the New York Public Library’s Central Children’s Room resides within

The Donnell Library is going to be demolished in May–and New York Public Library’s Central Children’s Room is housed inside.

The Central Children’s Room is so important. It’s not just a central location in the New York Public Library system for children’s books. It also provides all sorts of programs geared towards encouraging a love of reading in children, and learning to read, including an innovative and helpful program where children learn to read by reading to dogs. They even have Mary Poppin’s umbrella on display!

In a time when we need more literacy programs, not less, when we really need to help kids learn to read, the Central Children’s Room is a necessity. I truly hope, for that reason, that the Central Children’s Room will find a new space, a new home, that is just as good as its previous one was.
