DESCRIPTION

Historically, the Tompkins Square Library dates back to 1887, when it opened as the Fifth Street Branch of the Aguilar Free Library. The branch relocated three times before moving to its present site facing Tompkins Square Park. Designed by the famous architects McKim, Mead and White and constructed with funds donated to the City by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, the three-story branch has 16-foot ceilings, a spacious children’s room on the second floor, and an art gallery in the basement features shows by local artists). A major renovation of the branch, as part of the Library’s Adopt-A-Branch program, was completed in 1996.
