Brooklyn Public Library and On Demand Books, the owner of the patented Espresso Book Machine®, will launch a pilot program for Here Is Brooklyn at Central Library’s Dweck Center on May 30 at 9:30AM. Here Is Brooklyn is a creative writing program for Brooklyn schoolchildren. These students, from Third, Fourth and Fifth Grade, will read aloud from their stories, poems and short non-fiction pieces about growing up in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) today unveiled its newly installed Espresso Book Machine® (EBM), a Xerox Solution—a cutting-edge technology that offers patrons instant access to more than eight million titles printed in any language, and allows Brooklyn authors to self-publish their work on-site. The machine is up and running in the Library’s main branch at Grand Army Plaza, making BPL one of the first public libraries of its size to install the machine permanently.
