The series is a sort of thank-you on the part of the library’s trustees, who see the gift of his books as a fortunate, transforming windfall and intend to house it in a special room designed by the architect Henry Myerberg. “It really sparked a renaissance here at the library,” Rosemary Steinbaum, a trustee, said recently, explaining that the board planned to start a capital campaign not just to pay for the Roth room but also to refurbish the whole place. “We think the Newark Public Library can now become an important literary destination for students and scholars and even for tourists.”
