Chatham Square Library has been an integral part of the Chinatown neighborhood since its earliest days, with a circulating Chinese language collection available since 1911. This beautiful library also offers classes in ESOL, technology, and job search help. Like its fellow branches, Chatham Square Library is depending on your support to prevent the budget cuts proposed. Visit your local library to sign a letter or visit us online!
This glorious image was captured by the talented Elizabeth Felicella, who will be visiting Mid-Manhattan Library on June 1st to discuss her latest exhibition at the branch.

Speaking of the @JuxtapozMag article on Beastie Boys artwork, this is the old Mac G3 266Mhz model I used to do the Beastie Boys’ ‘Hello Nasty’ artwork on. It was more powerful than my computer at work, so I worked on my own machine, also doing the art for DMX’s ‘It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot’ album at the same time. Here it’s literally being used as a door stop. I can’t part with it! #SentimentalHoarder #BeastieBoys
