In 2017, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) announced a landmark gift of $55 million to support the complete renovation and transformation of The New York Public Library’s Mid-Manhattan Central Circulating Branch. The gift will also establish an endowment to support the branch’s public programming.
