This is the first adventure of the New York Public Library on Instagram. From this week, users of Mark Zuckerberg’s universe platform can now read fragments of Alice in the Wonderland. In the coming weeks, the library has already announced the provision of the second part of Lewis Carroll’s novel, The Yellow Paper by Charlotte Perkins and The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka.
