The surge in visitors to New York City’s libraries owes credit to none other than Jay-Z. In a collaborative effort between the Brooklyn Public Library and Roc Nation, a series of 13 exclusive library cards have been unveiled, all inspired by the iconic figure, Jay-Z.
The resonance with his solo album artworks is the driving force behind the recent upswing in library engagement. Impressively, the tally of newly registered library cardholders has already reached almost 14,000 individuals, as reported by CNN.
Exclusively accessible to New York residents, these distinctive cards are set to rotate throughout the month of August. The schedule for their availability can be conveniently located on the official BPL website. Linda E. Johnson, President and CEO of the Brooklyn Public Library, underlined the overwhelming response from the community to this unique exhibition, which serves as a testament to the profound impact Jay-Z has made. CNN was privy to this insight shared by Linda E. Johnson.
