About the Uni Project
The Uni Project is a nonprofit committed to increasing access to books and learning opportunities through pop-up, open-air reading rooms. Based in New York City, we operate reading rooms that bring architect-designed structures, high quality books, and dedicated staff, to the city’s plazas, parks, and public spaces. We partner with community-based organizations, and we prioritize underserved NYC neighborhoods. See where we go!
We also send kits around the world so others can copy our model. Get a Uni!
