The Library After Hours


Astor Hall is dramatically lit and filled with mingling people during The Library After Hours

Join us at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on select Fridays for the city's most cerebral happy hour. The Library After Hours features music, food and drinks, performances, and behind-the-scenes access to the Library’s collections.
