The building, which is a designated New York City landmark, has been completely renovated through the Library's Adopt-a-Branch program, through which private donors join public funders to restore branch libraries. While the original Ottendorfer Branch was designed as a bilingual library to serve the German community, the restored library can now better serve its multilingual community and provide an increased level of accessibility to all people. Highlights include the restored, repointed, and cleaned facade, an elevator, air-conditioning system, spacious reading area, new computer lab workstations, and children's floor with story-hour room.
