Brooklyn Public Library, Greenpoint BranchThe concept of a storefront library is not unique to this moment in Boston. There is a gentleman who has been thinking about library outposts for some time. Boston Street Lab is thrilled that Nate Hill, currently heading up the Greenpoint branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, has agreed to sign on as a Project Advisor to the Storefront Library.

Today we journeyed to Greenpoint to meet Nate, tour his Greenpoint branch, and gather his advice about developing the Storefront Library program. Nate’s enthusiasm for our project was deeply appreciated—it was great to connect with an experienced librarian who clearly has an appetite for the idea of putting a library in a storefront.
