Starting July 1 for only 3 days, the 42nd Street branch of the New York Public Library will be displaying it’s original manuscript of the Declaration of Independence in Thomas Jefferson’s hand and it’s original copy of the Bill of Rights in the three-day-only exhibition Foundations of Freedom. How cool is that?! http://on.nypl.org/14gFz3K
Kids may be on a break from school, but they shouldn’t take a break from reading. The New York Public Library is kicking off Summer Reading 2012 to encourage learning during the lazy, hazy days of summer.
Kids can join by visiting their local libraries or logging onto www.summerreading.org. They can choose books from the Summer Reading List and track their reading on the website. At the end of the summer, children will receive a certificate of participation.
