The Inwood Library is currently housed in a temporary location at 4857 Broadway, as work continues on building a new, state-of-the-art branch at our former address. The planned 20,000-square-foot new Inwood Library will feature an improved layout, as well as provide a variety of flexible spaces for programs and classes; dedicated spaces for kids, teens, and adults; internet/Wi-Fi access; updated technology; and a robust collection of circulating materials. It is expected to open in 2023.
