Park(ing) Day is an international event held on the third Friday in September in which parking spaces are reclaimed as places for people. The mission of Park(ing) day is to highlight the space we devote to cars and our need for more people space in our city. It is also seen as a way to generate discussion about how public infrastructure is allocated.
Our Reading Room participates in Park(ing) Day by turning a parking space into a parklet with a temporary Reading Room and tropical spiritual oasis.
