THIS WEEKEND: BPL Warming Center and Uni Pop-Up Library Come to Red Hook

Standard

TODAY 11/9/12: The Red Hook Library (7 Wolcott Street) will act as a Warming Center from 10AM – 8PM (and hopefully again next week and/or until power is restored fully in the area). Food and warm drinks will be available. AT&T is providing free Wi-Fi service on Friday (BPL’s computers and wifi have been impacted by the storm).

The Uni Project will deploy in Red Hook this Sunday (11/11/12) alongside a field hospital, a food truck, and other mobile solutions for residents which are staged in Coffey Park in partnership with the Brooklyn Public Library. BPL staff did advance work for their visit as part of their own efforts to serve Red Hook, which included a recent opening of branches as warming stations.

The Uni Project will be at Coffey Park from 12PM-4PM, and the weather looks to be sunny, clear, and even warm. A good day to step outside and experience a library.
