About the Library

Interior view of Riverdale

The Riverdale Branch of The New York Public Library was built in 1967 at the request of community residents to replace their small local library. It has book collections for adults, young adults, and children, as well as videos, DVDs, CDs, recorded books for borrowing, and a small collection of material in languages other than English, with an emphasis on Russian books.
