About the Mulberry Street Library


Mulberry Street branch
Old and new materials complement each other in the branch's building design.

The New York Public Library's Mulberry Street branch is located at the site of a former chocolate factory in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan, historically known as the Cast Iron District. 

The branch entrance is located at ground level, with two floors extending under ground. A prominent staircase brings natural light downstairs, and the building is designed with respect to the existing infrastructure, history, and context. New materials, such as wood and metal, provide a dynamic contrast to the existing fabric of brick, cast iron, and heavy timber beams. 

The branch houses a collection of more than 35,000 items. It has separate, cozy areas for children and young adults, as well as two large reading/working rooms for adults. There are 45 computers and laptops available throughout the building, and the multiuse community room hosts a wide range of educational and entertaining programs for visitors of all ages.
