NYPL's new LIBRARY SERVICES CENTER, a 145,000-square-foot state-of-the art complex in Long Island City, Queens, opens on April 22. The LSC features the world's largest automated sorter of library materials, a 238-foot, room-size system of conveyors, lasers, computers, and books bins. The new machine can sort 7,500 items per hour, or 125 a minute, reducing the time it takes for a book to travel through the system by at least a day.



The DOROTHY AND LEWIS B. CULLMAN CENTER FOR SCHOLARS AND WRITERS announces its 2010—2011 class of Fellows, 14 scholars who will be in residence at the Library for nine months, using its extraordinary collections to research a wide range of scholarly and literary projects.
