LOS ANGELES, August 29, 2018 – The New York Public Library (NYPL) announced that The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee has been named a NYPL Ambassador. In her new role, Yee will continue her work strengthening New York City, encouraging members of the public to get library cards and visit their local public library branches to read, learn, and grow. An avid reader and writer, Yee will also participate in New York Public Library events, campaigns, and programs, and is planning to host her popular “Kickin’ It from The Stoop” book club at library branches across the city.
"Angela Yee is a remarkable person whose success as a radio personality, entrepreneur, and writer is equaled by her insatiable desire to give back to her city and its people," said NYPL president Tony Marx. "Despite all that's on her plate, Angela has always found the time and energy to support and advocate for wonderful causes near to her heart, and we are so grateful to be one of them. We welcome her energy and passion, and thank her for supporting the Library's mission to make opportunity and knowledge accessible to all."
"Public libraries help thousands of New Yorkers explore the world outside our five boroughs, something Angela Yee also does through her book club and radio show," said Mayor Bill de Blasio. "We are very lucky to add someone as passionate as Angela to our list of library ambassadors."
As part of the special ceremony held during the annual West Indian-American and Caribbean-American Heritage celebration at Gracie Mansion, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared August 28th “Angela Yee Day.”
