The BHL — Spreading Holiday Cheer
The Biodiversity Heritage Library is a consortium of renowned natural history, botany, and research libraries sporting over two million volumes of unique biodiversity literature. It’s a pretty big deal, and not just because it’s a consortium (I know, so mysterious).
As part of this collective, the NYBG (that’s our own Library Building up there) is proud to be featured in the BHL’s holiday celebration rundown, highlighting a few of the seasonal activities on offer from its member institutions. Alongside our Holiday Train Show, you’ll find winter fun from the American Museum of Natural History, the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, and a handful of other world-class organizations from across the country. So even if you’re not front and center for the Garden events in New York City, there’s a chance you’ll be able to ring in the holidays with one of our friends elsewhere in the U.S.
Click through for the list, and maybe bounce around the BHL blog while you’re there; it’s a buffet of the goings-on at some of our favorite cultural institutions. —MN
