The Library Walk, is a venture launched in 1996 by the New York Public Library, Grand Central Partnership and New Yorker Magazine, in which are embedded in bronze plaques quotes from well-known books, or those dealing with books and literature. The panels designed by artist Gregg LeFevre were laid in 1998 from the New York Public Library building along 41st Street.
The plaque features a quote from an article by British feminist author Virginia Woolf based on a speech given by the author before the Workers Education Association, during World War II. In this speech Woolf sees a world where there are no more classes.
The plate simulates an open cube consisting of mirrors, with the quotation in the center, and a mirror of the quotation is displayed on all sides of the cube.
