NYPL is always a big treasure for any book-lovers, and of course, you Bookstrs! Besides its volcano-like collections of books, its half-palace-half-maze building has attracted our attention for a long time. Now, there’re two books about library adventures are making the dreams of sleep-over-at-NYPL come true!

Steadfast Fortitude and curious Patience are waiting every morning to greet visitors of the Library.
That is until, one early morning, when Fortitude finds Patience is missing. The city is about to awake, and the lions absolutely must be in their places before the sun rises. Now, Fortitude must abandon his own post to find his best friend in the Library’s labyrinthine halls.

Eleven-year-old Viviani Fedeler has spent her whole life in the New York Public Library. She knows every room by heart, except the ones her father keeps locked. When Viviani becomes convinced that the library is haunted, new girl Merit Mubarak makes fun of her. So Viviani decides to play a harmless little prank, roping her older brothers and best friend Eva to help out.
But what begins as a joke quickly gets out of hand, and soon Viviani and her friends have to solve two big mysteries: Is the Library truly haunted? And what happened to the expensive new stamp collection? It’s up to Viviani, Eva, and Merit (reluctantly) to find out.
No matter if it is a lion statue looking for his missing partner in the library before the sunrise, or a brave young girl with her friends exploring the haunted library, the newly published two books make me happy and curious about NYPL! I’ll definitely go check them out after work and you, Booktrs, should do that too 🙂
