How cool is this. The NYPL Roosevelt Island branch library and NYC Ferry are teaming up for Storytime on the Ferry:

According the the Registration Page:
Roosevelt Island Library Presents Storytime Aboard the NYC Ferry

Date and Time

Thu, September 26, 2019

11:13 AM – 12:35 PM EDT

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a storytime outside of the library… on a moving boat perhaps? Well this is the event for you! Join us for a one-of-a kind special edition version of storytime aboard the NYC Ferry! We will board at 11:13 AM on Roosevelt Island and ride to Wall Street and back to Roosevelt Island where we will disembark! We will not need to disembark at Wall Street but adults will need to have their return ticket purchased and ready to present to the Deckhands. The ride time will be roughly 80 minutes and we should return to Roosevelt Island by 12:41 PM! Children under 44 inches will ride for free! Please RSVP in advance!
Unfortunately, it appears the event is Sold Out.

Hopefully, Roosevelt Island Storytime Aboard the NYC Ferry will return with new dates - perhaps in the evening for adults too?

Here's a virtual NYC Ferry ride from Long Island City to Roosevelt Island
