NEW YORK, NY -- Public library collections expand and evolve, replacing old editions with newer ones in a continual effort to maintain relevance. At times like these, librarian Andrew Beccone swoops in to scavenge through the detritus. Beccone “pans for gold in the sediment of print culture,” depositing his booty at The Reanimation Library in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Independent, small-scale, and open to the public, The Reamination Library’s collection is thoughtfully curated with an eye toward visual content.
