DESCRIPTION

One of the 65 libraries built with funds donated to New York City by Andrew Carnegie, the 96th Street library was designed by the noted architectural firm of Babb, Cook and Willard. Both beautiful and functional, the interior is distinguished by tall arched windows, lofty ceilings, wide staircases, and dark oak bookshelves. A renovation in 1991 considerably expanded the space available to the public and modernized the building, while retaining its original architectural beauty. The branch contains an adult reading room, a children’s room with a separate space for story hours, an expanded reference center, a conference room, and an auditorium with a seating capacity of 50. Among the many programs and events offered for adults, children, and teens are monthly art exhibits.
