About the Pelham Bay Library


Pelham Bay branch
The branch features adult, young adult, children's and reference collections.

The Pelham Bay branch of The New York Public Library opened in 1976 with the enthusiastic support of community leaders who fought to see it become a reality.

The branch is a spacious brick building located on the corner of Middletown Road and Jarvis Avenue. It serves a large and diverse community in the Pelham Bay and Country Club sections of the Bronx. Fully accessible to people who use wheelchairs, the one-story facility houses adult, young adult, children's, and reference collections. A meeting room is available for community group meetings as well as library programs.
