Capital Projects


To ensure that all New Yorkers have access to the libraries that they need and deserve, The New York Public Library has built and is building several new state-of-the art branches and facilities across the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island, while also undertaking major renovations at existing neighborhood libraries.


Featured Project: 42nd Street Library Renovation 

The New York Public Library’s 42nd Street building has been a world-renowned and beloved source of inspiration, imagination, and knowledge in the heart of midtown Manhattan for more than 100 years. The Library’s renovation aims to enhance that role, strengthening research services, opening more of the architectural gem to the public, and bringing back the circulating library. Learn more.
