The Uni reading room landed at Hester St Fair to celebrate the conclusion of special collection from MAS’s Greenacre Reference Library.

Thanks to MAS staff for a terrific collaboration. Thanks also to Uni Volunteers Xavier Williams and Kelleen Maluski for a fast strike as a bit of rain came in at the end of the day. Tomorrow we head right around the corner to serve residents on Grand Street for five days in a row. We love the Lower East Side! Read on.

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.
