Chatham Square Library has been an integral part of the Chinatown neighborhood since its earliest days, with a circulating Chinese language collection available since 1911. Chatham Square opened in 1903, replacing a branch of the New York Free Circulating Library that had served the neighborhood for four years. The Chatham Square Library was designed by New York architectural firm McKim, Mead and White, and was the second branch after Yorkville to be constructed with funds from Carnegie’s 1901 gift to the city of New York.
