Have you visited @lukescentrallibrary yet? You won’t be disappointed by their stacked sandwiches, great coffee, and locally made pastries! It’s the perfect spot to dig into the holds you just picked up 📚
Safe to say that the new Central Library was our 2018 highlight!
Merry Christmas, East Villagers! Wishing you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday 🎄
After ➡️ Before
In 2014, the new Central Library was still a distant dream when we shared the building’s design details in East Village Experience Magazine.
Now, the future really IS here. This literary landmark is everything we were dreaming of – and more.
They say ‘be careful what you wish for’...but maybe we could have just a little bit of snow for a white Christmas ❄️
5th Street Square was looking oh so wintry and beautiful at our Light Up the Square event earlier this month!
