The People's Palace is Turning 100!


Discover the majestic 100-year-old Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street and its world-renowned collections. Since it opened on May 23, 1911, this marble masterpiece has been a source of inspiration — for novels, films, inventions, new careers, or simply as a welcoming place for New Yorkers to pull up a chair and open a great book.

It is also the inspiration for Celebrating 100 Years, a special exhibition showcasing the extraordinary range of the Library's collections, as well as a Weekend Festival of live music and theater, lectures, tours, and much more. Join the Centennial celebration!
