For #shoppingsunday, we’re celebrating our new Counterculture exhibition—You Say You #WantaRevolution: Remembering the 60s! Everything you see here is available at the @nyplshop link in our bio.
The youthful, free love movement embraced the casual blue jean, which was seen to represent freedom from more structured clothing. In this decade of creative expression, personalizing your jeans was considered very groovy, and our denim tote is a perfect thing to customize with buttons and pins.
Explore the intersection between old and new, and stay radical with staff pick titles that capture the spirit of peace, love, and revolution. ☮️
Opening today: the Library's new exhibition You Say You #WantARevolution: Remembering the 60s! We're kicking off the Library-wide celebration of Counterculture and the 1960s 7-9 PM tonight with a special #NYPLAfterHours.

Today we're sharing a sneak preview of two books about the Library. We can't wait until they're released this fall: Lost in the Library by Josh Funk with art by Stevie Lewis and The Story Collector by Kristin O'Donnell Tubb, cover art by Iacopo Bruno.
With clever rhyme and vibrant art, Lost in the Library introduces young readers to Patience and Fortitude, the noble lions who stand guard in front of the famed New York Public Library.
Eleven-year-old Viviani Fedeler grew up surrounded by books, but now she’s ready for her own adventure to begin. Set in the Roaring Twenties, this charming historical mystery was inspired by the real-life daughter of 42nd Street Library's superintendent.
