What to do while we're Libernating? A few suggestions:

Read an e-book. (Remember you can log in to Cloud Library with your Library Card ID, visible in My Tab on our website or on your NYSL card.)

Listen to an audiobook.

Flip through an e-magazine.

Take a peek at the Loeb Classical Library, the historic Times Literary Supplement, our own City Readers, or another of our many electronic resources.

Register for upcoming events in January, February, and March.

Plan your reading with book recommendation articles - the latest include books about books, books about birds, and books about Christmas.

Watch a recorded event from this season or a past one - there are recent additions such as Robert A. Caro (Working) with Brenda Wineapple (The Impeachers)Suketu Mehta (This Land Is Our Land: An Immigrant's Manifesto)and Giles Milton (Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare).

We wish you some time of warm hibernation - and lots of your favorite holiday activities as well - and we'll look forward to seeing you in 2020.
