The NYPL is partnering with ten libraries (Alameda County (Calif.) Library
Boston Public Library, Brooklyn Public Library, Chattanooga (Tenn.) Public Library, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Cuyahoga County (Ohio) Public Library, Kent (Mich.) District Library, New York Public Library, Santa Clara County (Calif.) Library District, and Sacramento (Calif.) Public Library) on a project called Library Simplified.
