The opening of a new coffee shop by Four & Twenty Blackbirds at the Grand Central Brooklyn Public Library on Pi Day is another sign of the effort of the Brooklyn Public Library system to transform its branches to more than simple studies or work areas.

The spot “Pi(e) day at the Library” celebrates the Brooklyn Public Library and the Four & Twenty Blackbirds’ initiative of bringing together culture and gastronomy. It helps to promote the idea of libraries as places where creativity, inspiration and collaboration are thriving among the community.
