The Uni Project created a reading room on the corner of Henry and Montague Streets this Sunday. We were invited by Montague St BID to join Summer Space, Montague Street’s annual Weekend Walk. Thanks to Will Donham for photos, Pascale Nijhof and Leigh Hurwitz for volunteering, and Ken Gordon for logistics. Andrew Collins, science educator and frequent Uni contributor stopped by to help explore insects under the Uni microscope. Jon Manbeck, former Brooklyn Borough Historian, came by and donated one of his books to the Uni collection. Thanks everyone!
There’s a library in here, ready to get to work.
Volunteer Librarian Pascale Nijhof and I used to work together at the Legal Aid Society, and we’ve lived through our share of emergencies. Today, we had to move the Uni to make way for…
An ambulance on its way to tend to a gentleman up the street.
The Uni is a portable library. It can come for the afternoon. It can move out of the way of an ambulance.
This remarkable pop-up book was donated to the Uni by the Museum of Chinese in America.
Science Educator Andrew Collins arrived to demonstrate how to capture live ants for identification.
Thanks to Jon Manbeck for donating his book Chronicles of Historic Brooklyn.
Thanks Leigh and Pascale for keeping Brooklyn Heights on the straight and narrow this afternoon. Keep reading!
