Happy Halloween from NYPL! An artistic staffer carved this amazing Library-Lion-O-Lantern last year using our logo (watch this video of him doing it - it’s pretty cool), and we thought we would share it again. Want to make your own Patience (or Fortitude) pumpkin and show support for the Library? Print out this stencil and get to work! Meanwhile, the Library remains closed this Halloween because of Hurricane Sandy. We are working to reopen tomorrow - in between trick or treating, stay tuned here for updates. And happy Halloween!

“A library is like the best person you know - politely quiet but endlessly informative, amazingly knowledgeable but charmingly discreet, open to everyone yet subject to your every whim, and, sadly, flammable if one isn’t careful.  Be careful with yours.”—Lemony Snicket
