Reading Room: A Catalog of New York City’s Branch Libraries, features the work of architectural photographer Elizabeth Felicella documenting all 210 branches of New York City’s extensive public library systems in more than 1,700 photographs. Felicella’s subtle yet clear and technically accomplished photographs depict the libraries from varying vantage points – from full-scope exterior shots to intimate studies of window plants and pencil sharpeners – inviting the viewer to appreciate the intricacy, complexity, and vast scope of these vital and evolving public resources.
