1. We are extremely excited to share the first-ever look at the inspiring new lending library that will be constructed for the public inside of our historic building at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. The project—designed by world-renowned architect Norman Foster and his award-winning firm Foster + Partners—more than doubles the amount of public space, better preserves the Library’s research materials, and creates a truly integrated central library in the heart of New York City serving all people, from scholars and students to toddlers and teens.
We encourage everyone to visit the Library’s dedicated webpage at www.nypl.org/clp to learn more about the plan.
