DESCRIPTION

The Columbus Branch of The New York Public Library has been a center for education in the multi-ethnic, working-class neighborhood of Clinton since the branch opened in 1909. The Columbus branch underwent an extensive renovation from 2004-2005, which completely rehabilitated and modernized the elegant Renaissance Revival, Indiana limestone building. From the 1970s until its closure in 2004, the library operated on only one floor. The renovation keeps many of the building’s historic elements, including the original iron-railed staircase and the oak-paneled entrance vestibule. The major changes include: complete redesign and reconfiguration of the interior public service areas, restoration of the second floor as a dedicated children’s reading room, including a separate story hour room, and a new elevator serving all floors.
