The Polonsky Exhibition of The New York Public Library's Treasures highlights significant historical items from our world-renowned research collections at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and the Library for Performing Arts.

The Library's first-ever permanent exhibition offers an unparalleled opportunity for teachers and students to engage with our special collections through the field trip program. For additional access, our Treasures in the Classroom program provides teachers with reproductions of exhibited objects for classroom use. Treasures for Educators professional development sessions are also available to support student engagement with objects and archives.
