Description : Excerpt from Annual Report of the Trustees of the Astor Library of the City of New-York: Made to the Legislature, January 29, 1850 The Trustees of the Astor Library, in obedience to the provisions of the ninth section of the act of the 18th of January, 1849, entitled An act to incorporate the Trustees of the Astor Library, requiring them to make to the Legislature in the month of January in each year, a report for the year ending on the thirty-first day of December, preceding, 1. Of the condition of the said library, 2. Of the funds and other property of the corporation, and 3. Of its receipts and expenditures during such year, Report: That in considering how far they are called on by the requirements above cited to enter into the detail of their proceedings, they have deemed it best in accordance with the intention of Mr. Astor, to whose munificence the library owes its existence, to give entire publicity to all they have done, in carrying out the purposes of his bequest. The library was designed by him to be essentially public in its character; and if they are not strictly enjoined to embrace in their annual reports, any proceeding or act on their part not directly calculated to illustrate the condition of the library, the general object of the grant and their own earnest desire to make known what they bare done and shall do from time to time, have determined them to present to the Legislature in each year a report, which shall contain all that can be considered of public interest.

Description : On May 11, 1911, the New York Public Library opened its “marble palace for book lovers” on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. This was the city’s first public library in the modern sense, a tax-supported, circulating collection free to every citizen. Since before the Revolution, however, New York’s reading publics had access to a range of “public libraries” as the term was understood by contemporaries. In its most basic sense a public library in the eighteenth and most of the nineteenth centuries simply meant a shared collection of books that was available to the general public and promoted the public good. From the founding in 1754 of the New York Society Library up to 1911, public libraries took a variety of forms. Some of them were free, charitable institutions, while others required a membership or an annual subscription. Some, such as the Biblical Library of the American Bible Society, were highly specialized; others, like the Astor Library, developed extensive, inclusive collections. What all the public libraries of this period had in common, at least ostensibly, was the conviction that good books helped ensure a productive, virtuous, orderly republic—that good reading promoted the public good. Tom Glynn’s vivid, deeply researched history of New York City’s public libraries over the course of more than a century and a half illuminates how the public and private functions of reading changed over time and how shared collections of books could serve both public and private ends. Reading Publics examines how books and reading helped construct social identities and how print functioned within and across groups, including but not limited to socioeconomic classes. The author offers an accessible while scholarly exploration of how republican and liberal values, shifting understandings of “public” and “private,” and the debate over fiction influenced the development and character of New York City’s public libraries in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Reading Publics is an important contribution to the social and cultural history of New York City that firmly places the city’s early public libraries within the history of reading and print culture in the United States.
