“Whether [it’s] some schools having gone remote or the libraries being closed, people have a hunger to keep reading, to keep learning and informing themselves. To bring that diversity in literature, to see that reading should not be a privilege … the SpeakEasy Bookmobile has been invaluable in expanding access to resources to our neighbors in NYCHA and throughout the community.”
—City Council Member Carlina Rivera, District 2
