Dear patrons!

We’re entering a new era in our life! In September, our beloved American Center will begin renovations, which promise amazing opportunities for you. Here’s a peek at what to expect:

✓ A new Makerspace with 3-D printer and other fantastic toys!
✓ Contemporary and hip furniture!
✓ New expanded work stations!
✓ And much, much more!

Are you excited yet? We sure are. But fret not! During our renovations, we will still be conducting events with amazing guests and speakers, clubs and other activities. (And do we have a great program for you this fall!) These events may take place in a different hall, but in the same library building, thanks to the generosity of the Library of Foreign Literature. Please stay tuned to our websites and announcements for more information.

We thank you for your patience during these renovations and greatly look forward to sharing the new us with the new you!

    Photo Project "STATISTICA: Russian Federation 2005"
    September 12, 2005

    You are invited to view a photo project entitled “STATISTICA: Russian Federation 2005” on Monday, September 12 at 6 p.m. Fulbright scholar, Jason Eskenazi will discuss the project which includes large format color portraits of Russians across geographical Russia as well as across different strata of society. It is a collaborative project between an American photographer Jason Eskenazi, and a Russian photographer, Valeri Nistratov.
    Jason Eskenazi first traveled to Russia in 1991 just before the August coup and has returned many times since culminating in a photography book project "Wonderland: A Fairytale of the Soviet Monolith" exhibited at Visa Pour L' Image in Perpignan, France. Eskenazi has received numerous awards including a Guggenheim Fellowship, 1999; The Dorothea Lange/Paul Taylor Prize, 1999, for his work in a Jewish Village in Azerbaijan; and The Alicia Patterson Foundation Grant, 1996. His work has appeared in many magazines.
    Eskenazi has also organized a "Kids with Cameras" project in the old city of Jerusalem, teaching photography to Muslims and Jewish children.
