Rose Main Reading Room Ceiling Restoration
The New York Public Library’s Rose Main Reading Room and Bill Blass Public Catalog Room are closed temporarily for restoration of their historic ceilings.
The project, which began this summer following a full assessment of the historic rooms, will repair slight cracking in the ceiling facades and will secure the rooms’ iconic plaster rosettes. The Bill Blass Public Catalog Room is expected to reopen in fall 2016 and the Rose Main Reading Room in early 2017.
Accessing MaterialsDuring the temporary closure, all General Research Division services have relocated to the Second Floor Corridor. Please note that GRD materials can now be delivered to all staffed public reading rooms. Visit Where to Research, Read, Find Wi-Fi, and More for additional information.
