NYPL, MTA Partner for 'Subway Library'

The New York Public Library and the Metropolitan Transit Authority have teamed up to launch Subway Library, "a free platform where you can browse and download books, short stories, chapters and excerpts that can be read quickly and easily during your commute." Gothamist reported that the NYPL created the system, which works off Transit Wireless and is powered by the same tech as their SimplyE e-reader.

To celebrate the launch, a subway train has been "wrapped" to look like a library. The train is running alternately on both the E and F lines.
