The New York Public Library's St. Agnes branch has served generations of users since opening at its Upper West Side location in 1906. The striking and stately building, one of the Library’s original Carnegie branches, has received a complete renovation, resulting in an upgrade that renews all of its spaces and integrates many new services and features. On February 11 the Library celebrated the branch’s reopening with a morning ceremony and a day of free public events including programs for children and teens, a neighborhood history talk, job workshop, branch tours and more.


The St. Agnes Branch is located at 444 Amsterdam Avenue, between 81st and 82nd streets.

Library hours

So excited to have the library re-opened. Is there any chance of moving the opening hours earlier than 11am during week? As a parent of a young child, it would be great to come earlier in the morning.
