An ancient Japanese legend advises that a wish will be granted to one who folds 1000 cranes. There are other stories that offer happiness or good fortune as the product of the thousand folded cranes. The Greenpoint Library has chosen to use the origami crane as an artistic way to bring the community together in observance of the anniversary of COVID. They have put out a request to the community to contribute to this good luck flock, which will be displayed in the windows of the library.
If you’d like to contribute to the 1000 cranes, drop off your origami crane at the information desk during business hours. The Greenpoint Library is located at 107 Norman Avenue (on Leonard Street). Their hours are: 10 a.m.–4 p.m. on Mon., Wed., Fri., & Sat.; closed on Sundays; and 1 p.m–7p.m. on Tues. & Thurs.
