DC Public Library

In January 2015, the DC Public Library became the first library to put our new Uni reading room cart into service. We’ll keep you posted right here as they venture out in DC, starting with a blog post about the delivery, see below.

A Uni for the DC Public Library

Leslie and I are excited for the DC Public Library. They have ambitious plans across the city, including transformation of their Mies-designed MLK branch into a vibrant hub of community and downtown culture. And, as of last Friday, they also have a Uni portable reading room. DCPL’s Executive Director Rich Reyes-Gavilan has been a friend and partner for some years. […]


We're getting a "new" name... Street Lab.

The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a nonprofit launched in 2006 in Boston, where we created community-oriented programs for public space. In 2011, we migrated Street Lab to New York City and launched the Uni Project. The Uni began as a single, portable reading room and has since grown into a city-wide initiative offering more than 600 days of pop-up programming in 150+ public spaces across the city. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.
For now, details about our programs are available here on the Uni Project web site. Soon, that content will move to www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
