About the Library

Photo of the interior of the new Roosevelt Island Library featuring an information desk with a large blue banner with red text that reads: Welcome

The Roosevelt Island branch of The New York Public Library opened in a new 5,200-square-foot location in January 2021, down the street from the previous library. The space, in a former school, offers the community much-needed space, including dedicated areas for kids and teens, a community room for programs, and up-to-date technology.
