The Uni Project is dedicated to expanding a culture of learning beyond the walls of schools and libraries and into public space. We've developed a new tool to do this work: a portable educational environment called the Uni that can be dropped into almost any available street-level location. Part library, part classroom, the Uni provides a place to gather around books and learning experiences, right in the heart of neighborhoods all across New York City.
We're also making Uni infrastructure for others. Read about other Unis in the US and abroad in the drop-down menu above. We've been at this work for a while—check out the Storefront Library.
Library Journal described the Uni as one of several “groundbreaking ideas...that could stimulate out-of-the-box thinking on how to impact library users in fresh ways.”
