A Downtown State of Mind Saturday courtesy of the Tompkins Square Library branch

The Tompkins Square Library branch on 10th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B continues to offer free virtual programming... here are two events of possible interest this coming weekend (descriptions via the NYPL) ... 

• Saturday, March 6 at 2 p.m.: A Downtown State of Mind celebrating the launch of LiVE MAG! #17  The CoViVid Issue. Zoom Afternoon of Art, Poetry and Inspired Palavar. Jeffrey Cyphers Wright has been publishing art and poetry for decades. His vision has a decidedly downtown slant and the new issue of Live Mag! is true to its East Village roots. 

(Related programSaturday, March 20 at 2 p.m. — A Downtown State of Mind part II.)

• Sunday, March 7 at 2 p.m.: Lower East Side Art + Activism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon. Help the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS), Interference Archive, Tompkins Square Library and Wikimedia NYC expand Wikipedia's coverage of the Lower East Side at the Museum's second virtual Wikipedia edit-a-thon! 

In keeping with the MoRUS mission to preserve the history of grassroots activism and promote community-based urban ecologies, we will expand Wikipedia's coverage of the community gardens, community centers, grassroots movements, galleries, clubs, squats and homesteads that have contributed to our neighborhood's oversized cultural impact. No experience needed; we'll help you create a Wikipedia account and teach you how to edit content. The edit-a-thon runs from 2-4 p.m., but you can stay for as long (or as short) as you like.

Like other NYPL branches, the Tompkins Square Library is currently only open for grab-and-go service from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. 

New York residents ages 13 and older can get a digital library card through the NYPL's online card application and gain access to an array of digital resources.
