Love a Library

Inspiring all five boroughs to visit local library branches

This February we will mobilize hundreds of volunteers to help public libraries in the five boroughs. All month long we aim to give neighborhood residents a fresh look at the opportunities available at their local branches through revitalization projects, children's reading activities, and other community-engaging events.

Children’s Education

Foster a love of reading among children while helping them utilize their creativity on our Project Runway activity. Kids will make fashion using recycled materials. 

Adult Education

 Critique résumés, practice their interview skills, and help them search and apply for jobs online.


Transform a library into an inviting place by helping sort, organize and shelve library books and materials and/or painting a colorful mural. 

Get Involved

Stay tuned for opportunties to give back to your library. For now, check out our volunteer opportunities for children’s education and adult education
