Know the Past, Find the Future by Various Authors Book Summary

From Laurie Anderson to Vampire Weekend, Roy Blount, Jr., to Renée Fleming, Stephen Colbert to Bill T. Jones—more than 100 luminaries reflect on the treasures of America’s favorite public library.

Marking the centennial of The New York Public Library’s Beaux-Arts landmark at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street, now called the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Know the Past, Find the Future harnesses the thoughts of an eclectic assortment of notable people as they ponder an even more eclectic assortment of objects. From among the Library’s vast collections, these writers, artists, philosophers, scientists, musicians, athletes, architects, choreographers, and journalists—as well as some of the curators who have preserved these riches—each select an item and describe its unique significance. The result, in words and photographs, is a glimpse of what a great library can be.

I never knew. I grew upon n.y. And lived in manhattan twenty years before I moved to Los Angeles. I am now eighty years old. I lived on the west side and spent many Saturday's and Sunday's at the metropolitan and the museum of modern art, but after reading this wonderful descriptions of what what was in the NYPL I am so sad I never went in to the library which I walked past thousands of times. If I had seen this book or even suspected what was to be found there I would have lived between the stacks. I recommend this as required reading. Thanks for the wonderful visit. And now I know what I must reread for the next twenty years..... Frank Jacobi
