Councilman Andy King and the New York Public Library teamed up to host an event launching a new reading challenge called ‘Reading is Cool!’ at the Eastchester Library on Tuesday, March 1. The event was designed to engage young readers with a selection of 20 children’s titles selected by expert NYPL librarians. The list is based on the most popular youth-themed books requested in libraries in King’s district.
