The Uni returned to East Harlem to create a reading room at Harvest Home’s farmers’ market and play street. Uni volunteers Emily Jacobson and Katherine Plater were joined by Chris, intern at La Casa Azul Bookstore. Our library partner was NYPL Aguilar Library. Today’s deployment was funded in part by Transportation Alternatives—we’re working together to support play streets by increasing stay times and offering kids and adults a place to read as well as exercise.
