New programs for Lincoln Center Local HD, a pilot program running April through June in branch libraries in Brooklyn and Queens, were announced by Russell Granet, Executive Director of Lincoln Center Education.These events, which launched in January, are part of the two-year pilot program that will feature digital streams of programs from Lincoln Center's growing digital content collection, including programs from the Emmy Award-winning series Live From Lincoln Center.

The Lincoln Center Local HD pilot program is part of Lincoln Center Education's (LCE) expanded mission to bring Lincoln Center's high-quality resources to new and underserved audiences and communities.

At each free Lincoln Center Local HD screening, there are activities to further engage the audience, such as a live performance by a professional artist, as well as complimentary refreshments and discussion following the event. As part of the "pilot" nature of Lincoln Center HD, an event will be held once a month through June at the six participating branch libraries, followed by research to evaluate the program's potential expansion throughout the five boroughs and beyond.
