Wonderful Article on Lower East Side library and its history

The NYTimes, which requires free registration to access the last week's articles, had this article on some old library reports found at the 95-year-old Seward Library and how they proved to be a fascinating glimpse through the decades both at the neighborhood and the people who came into the library. I'm a library-junkie so this was brilliant for me. (Thanks to Adventures in Bookselling for the link.)

BTW: I highly recommend registering for the NYTimes online. They're the premier newspaper for book talk and more than likely, I'll have more links from them. Also, you'll now be able to look at the Sunday Book Review, which is still one of the most potent forces in the greater book industry.
