The Lawyers for the Library Committee

The Lawyers for the Library Committee provides integral support for the Library's mission to inspire lifelong learning. advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. The committee is comprised of attorneys representing New York City's top law firms; member firms contribute $10,000 or more to support the Library's essential services and programs. Throughout the year, Committee members are invited to special events, including the annual Lawyers for the Library Dinner, talks by noted authors and VIP exhibition openings, and member firms’ summer associates and employees are invited to attend private tours of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.
