In addition to the usual tote bags and T-shirts emblazoned with library logos, you’ll find quirky magnets with sayings like "A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle" and lots of books on New York City, writers, and writing. Classic storybook characters come to life in these whimsical shops where Wild Things dolls are tucked in among kids' favorite stories. One edition of Goodnight Moon even comes with a pair of bunny slippers. Fine writing instruments and stationery as well.
