Ask a Question

The Van Cortlandt Branch of The New York Public Library is a cozy one-room, one-floor branch situated nearby the Jerome Park Reservoir and historic Van Cortlandt Park. Both the Park and the Branch owe their names to an early 18th-century New York Mayor, Jacobus Van Cortlandt, whose family owned large tracts of land in the area. The Branch opened in 1969, formerly operating out of a tiny apartment in the area, and is fully accessible to persons who use wheelchairs. It houses a small but varied collection of books, genre paperbacks, videos, CDs, DVDs and audio cassettes for all ages.

There are book collections for adults, young adults, and children as well as videos, audiocassettes, CDs, DVDs, and Books-On-Tape available. Also a small collection of Russian and Spanish language books for all ages and an excellent paperback collection with a selection of genre fiction such as Mystery, Romance, and Science Fiction.
