The forward-thinking online publication Bronx Narratives, that provides what they call a “fresh view” of the Bronx, has a lovely feature on Dawn Holloway, the NYPL manager at the Morris Park Library.
In the “day in the life” interview, Holloway talks about her background in Castle Hill and her passion for books and serving the public.
She also described in detail her innovative Bronx Book Box program that gives library patrons and the general public a chance to share books. Paid for by an Innovation Project grant, the idea she says is to have the dual agenda of bringing books to people who usually don’t have access to them and illustrate the services available at the NYPL.
This is a delightful read about a little-appreciated aspect of daily Bronx life.
