Mayor Martin J. Walsh helps launch Uni for Boston
Uni Project: 7.23.2014 by Sam

On Saturday, July 19, we were honored to launch a Uni portable reading room for Boston with help from Mayor Martin J. Walsh. The location was downtown’s Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, where this Uni will remain, popping up at different locations along the park all summer.

The Uni was the first winner of the Mayor’s 2014 Public Space Invitational to launch, and we were able to do so thanks to sponsor Robert Half, Howeler + Yoon Architecture, and partners Boston Public Library and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Special thanks to new Uni volunteers from Simmons Graduate School of Library and Information Sciences, and to all of the friends and supporters who came out.  READ MORE !

The Uni Project is a nonprofit committed to increasing access to books and learning opportunities through pop-up, open-air reading rooms. Based in New York City, we operate reading rooms that bring architect-designed structures, high quality books, and dedicated staff, to the city's plazas, parks, and public spaces. We partner with community-based organizations and our circuit prioritizes underserved NYC neighborhoods.
