About Bronx Library Center

Interior of BLC

The Bronx Library Center is the largest public library in the Bronx, with extensive collections of print and non-print materials for adults, young adults, and children. The fully renovated Bronx Library Center designed by Dattner Architects opened its doors to the public on January 17, 2006. This $50 million dollar, state-of-the-art, 78,000 square-foot center is NYPL's first green library, and was presented with the LEED Silver Certification Award in 2007 by the U.S. Green Building Council.
