The Monuments Men film is a slightly fictionalized version of the incredible true story of the activities of the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives Program at the end of World War II. If you enjoyed the film, check out our preservation-related book picks! http://on.nypl.org/1Ewhl7y

In 1901, Andrew Carnegie gave New Yorkers a gift. More than a hundred years later, this gift is still giving. Join us in celebrating the man's vision and more than a century's worth of generoisty. http://on.nypl.org/1dy85XY

High-five, millennials! A new research study shows that 88% of Americans under 30 read at least one book per year, in comparison to only 79% of adults over the age of 30. Find out more about what the Pew Research Center found in its study on American reading habits. http://on.nypl.org/1usOmgA

How would you rank Jane Austen's male protagonists? We know, we know: Collins would come in last place. But it's hard so hard to choose a favorite! http://on.nypl.org/1vJPrEy

This Japanese craftsman and book conservator can make your tattered pocket dictionary look brand new, and he does it one page at a time. http://on.nypl.org/1DZDB6q
For the past 33 years Japanese craftsman Okano Nobuo has been repairing tattered books and reconstituting them to look brand new. When a customer brought in an old Japanese-English dictionary that looked like it had been through a few wars, Okano approached it like an art conservationist repairing

Who was the real Mr. Darcy? One historian spent the last five years investigating, and she may have discovered the answer: http://on.nypl.org/1KAWB0J

+Otto SixtySix What ? Has Rowling been able to now buy her way into sainthood and thus immune to criticism ? I suppose if I criticise the Twilight and Hunger Games movies as the product of talentless hacks this can also be simply dismissed as my jealousy ? If true its strange then that Rowling, Twilight and Hunger Games have been generally panned by most critics at least those not working for school papers...
