On the latest NYPL Podcast, Dan Savage discussed moralism, marriage, monogamy and much more: http://on.nypl.org/1NbQFvD
Dan Savage is one of the most intelligent, mordant, and deliciously fun voices discussing sex, relationships, and identity today. An advice columnist, activist, and author, Savage has written six works of nonfiction and created the It Gets Better Project, a nonprofit aimed at preventing suicide amongst LGBT youth.

From naturally-occurring groundwater to man-made sewers and steam pipes, workers and engineers tasked with building and maintaining the New York subway system have seen it all. Subway construction, then and now: http://on.nypl.org/1BBfS1V
Recent photos, compared side by side with photographs of the construction of New York’s first subway, which opened in 1904, provide stark contrasts. They are evidence of an industry drastically changed: the methods of construction used, the condition and expressions of the workers, and the scale of the projects differ in striking ways.

Summer is here . . . which means the Library's Outdoor Reading Room is back! Stop by the Schwarzman Building between now and July 17 to read, chat, and lounge in the sun or shade—oh, and don't forget to share your Summer Reads using our onsite recommendations board and the #ireadeverywhere hashtag! http://on.nypl.org/1LoCe9l
The NYPL is bringing back their outdoor reading room, and this year it's based on the iconic 1970 Slim Aarons photograph Poolside Gossip.

What makes a compelling final sentence in a book? Tell us some of your favorites. http://on.nypl.org/1RhjkRh
This completes a series of essays on craft that I privately refer to as “The Art of…: The Series.” (You can see why the name has remained private.) Previous entries include Epigraphs, the Opening Sentence, Close Writing, and Chapters. (Spoilers, spoilers, blah, blah, blah.) ...

"He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother." - Last line of 1984

Ever been curious about homeschooling your child? Then let NYPL's very own Maura Muller walk you through a day in the life of a library homeschooler. http://on.nypl.org/1evlPDq
It seems that many of my favorite homeschooling blogs have been featuring “A Day in the Life” essays lately, and there have been a few nods to spending time at libraries, but no one mentions homeschooling exclusively using library materials. So, I will, because we do!

You know that Webster's Dictionary on your bookshelf? Well here are four things you never knew about Noah Webster, the man behind the book. http://on.nypl.org/1KdkHBC
To 19th century Americans, Noah Webster was one of the country's greatest figures. Today, the man who defined American English for generations of schoolkids is barely remembered. Here are some reasons to bring his memory back.

When did you first read To Kill a Mockingbird? In advance of the release of Go Set a Watchman, NYPL librarians reflect on the first time they met Atticus, Scout, Boo Radley, and Tom Robinson. http://on.nypl.org/1Lodrjn
