river1_200Harvest Home logoIn July and August 2014, we deployed the Uni reading room to a play street run by Harvest Home next to their farmer’s market on Rivera Avenue in the Bronx, a few blocks north of Yankee Stadium. Learn more about our ongoing effort at play streets. Made possible by a generous grant from Shippy Foundation and additional support from Target. Thanks to Uni Librarian Leigh Hurwitz! Photos are from July 11, 18, 25, August 1, 8, 15.
