jennings39_200In July and August 2014, we deployed the Uni reading room to a new play street run by Caldwell Programs on Jennings Street near Prospect Ave in the Morrisania neighborhood of the Bronx. Learn more about our ongoing effort at play streets. Our participation was made possible by a generous grant from Shippy Foundation and additional support from Target. Thanks to Uni Librarian and site manager Rasheed Lucas and play street founder Lonnie Hardy! Photos are from July 29, 30, 31, and August 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 12, 14, 15.
