The Kips Bay Library (446 3rd Ave.​) is now offering Grab & Go Service.

You can reserve your items online, get an email when they’re ready, and head over for contactless pickup.

Online, they also have e-books and audiobooks.

And there are a number of interesting virtual events, including a book club for adults – and for tweens.

For kids aged 4-10, there’s “Creating Characters and Stories with Society of Illustrators” on September 23rd:

“Draw along using the different prompts shown to you in class, as we explore how illustrators find inspiration to create characters and stories. Participants will be led through various drawing techniques by artist Clare Pernice, who will help them create characters using found objects in a live drawing and coloring demonstration. Clare will share a few examples of children’s books featuring different characters and stories.”
