As a librarian, I couldn’t be more excited about Leon Reid IV’s latest project together with filmmaker Julia Marchesi. The Hundred Story House is designed to be a open bookshelf in a sculpture of a typical Brooklyn brownstone that will be installed within a city park. Based on the take-a-book/leave-a-book concept, the community is encouraged to get together and share books. At a time when public spending on both libraries and the arts are under threat, it is all the more important to support efforts to bring positive and uplifting elements into people’s lives. The 100 Story House brings two of my favorite things together: public art and public libraries. Do the right thing. And read more books!
