Please join us for an open house and reception for Reading Room. Elizabeth Felicella, the exhibition photographer, will be present to answer questions about her project.

The Center for Architecture is proud to present Reading Room: A Catalog of New York City’s Branch Libraries, an exhibition featuring 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.
