Superheroes come in all shapes and sizes. The Uni is so pleased that 826NYC, home of Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co, has curated and donated a cube of books featuring young New York writers.

The 826 donation includes several remarkable non-book items which challenged our cataloging system in the best way. (See 826 Cube catalog below.) Thank you 826 for your work to create a new generation of writers, and for showing us how the inspiration to read and write can come from a label on a can, as well as a published book. Cheers.

About our “new” name… Street Lab.

Street Lab began in Boston in 2006. In 2011, we moved the organization to NYC and launched the Uni Project, which was a portable reading room that roamed the city. In 2020, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.
