Visit the New York Public Library and express why you're there with a selfie.

The New York Public Library has upped its digital prowess with everything from extensive digitized collections to 3D historical stereograph gifs. Recently, they've taken that tech-savviness and jumped on the selfie bandwagon by installing two photo booths that allow visitors to “capture a moment in their library visit.”

Each selfie can be tagged with library related activities like “@NYPL Reading”, “@NYPL Visiting”, “@NYPL Borrowing” to describe how the picture's subject may be using the library. Visitors can then email the photo to themselves and upload it to the NYPL website. Located at the 42nd Street branch and the Mid-Manhattan Library – each selfie snapped by the photo booths are on display on the NYPL Photo Booth Flickr. Sure, an iPhone can serve the same purpose but why not explore, research, get off Instagram and find out more about what the library has to offer.
