Courtesy of skyeyez, this is such a striking photo. The stark, natural background is so fitting, along with the great use of shadows. Time to put this back out on our own table…

LOOK CLOSELY: Sparkly eyes should reflect elegance, not child labor.

That is why we’re raising money to free children who are forced to mine our makeup in India. If we can fund 5 Safe Villages, we will protect 1,000 children from this brutal exploitation and help them achieve their dreams in schools.

INSPIRE your community by STARTING A FUNDRAISER to make sure there are no children behind our sparkles.

The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.

The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.

Happy 115th birthday to E.B. White! During his life, White wrote some of best known children’s books of the past century, such as Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan. He captured the imagination of children everywhere with his talking animals, while at the same time teaching them important lessons, like the value of friendship.

Here at NYPL, we love children’s books! So much, in fact, that we decided to create an exhibition, The ABC of It: Why Children’s Books Matter, where you can actually hear E.B. White read from Charlotte’s Web! If you want relive some memories of your childhood, come check it out at the Stephen A. Schwarzman building through September 7th. Or, you can always stop by your local NYPL branch and pick up a copy of any of E.B. White’s stories today!
