Which school is best for you?
New York Public Library has become the first US city to make a formal decision on which library will host the annual Global New York Summer Reading Festival.
The city’s Board of Directors decided Monday to select The City’s largest library system, the Union, over the University of Southern California’s Arroyo Seco, which will host a reading series for about 100 people this summer.
The board also voted to establish a new library system at Union for its summer reading series.
“It is not just about the book,” said David H. Grosbard, the city’s director of public libraries, in announcing the decision.
“The goal is to make sure that New Yorkers get access to books that are relevant to them, relevant to their lives.”
Union is expected to host about 40 readings each year, and the board is expected eventually to decide how many will be available for free, as well as how much will be paid.
The Union, a sprawling public library system in Manhattan, has the distinction of being the only library system with an annual budget of $1.5 billion.
In addition to offering free reading sessions, the library has a number of programs designed to bring new books to life.
For example, the Library’s annual Summer Reading Series, which is held on the first Wednesday of each month, brings books from local publishers to the library for reading.
Another initiative aims to connect young people in underserved communities with local libraries and bookstores.
A third initiative, the New York City Summer Reading Challenge, provides a cash prize for the best books that students can read at school or work in the summer.
Last year, more than $4 million was given to New York schools to prepare students for reading events.
The festival will also be held in the Union in 2018.

The Library of Congress, which holds the city-wide library system designation, will host its annual Reading Festival in 2019.
The American Library Association will be hosting its own Reading Festival this summer, which it plans to hold every summer from 2019 to 2024.
In the United Kingdom, there are no national guidelines for deciding which libraries are best for readers.
Libraries in England, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain are considered by the Association for the Advancement of Science to be the best libraries for readers, according to a list of the most popular libraries published by the Library Association of England and Wales.
The United States is the only major developed country without a formal policy on the subject.
But the New Yorkers are not the only ones to be swayed by the city library system’s decision.
In fact, in the US, a similar decision to select a library system has been made in some other cities.
“New York is the birthplace of the global reading movement,” Grosbert said in announcing his decision.
“The Union is the place to be for books that connect readers with books that have been overlooked.
We want to encourage reading for our kids and to connect them with books they will love for years to come.”
