NYPL Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library to Reopen on June 1

NEW YORK – The New York Public Library’s (NYPL) transformed Central Circulating Branch, now known as the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library, is set to reopen on June 1, the New York Post reported on May 22.

The former Mid-Manhattan branch, located at 40th Street and Fifth Avenue, underwent a three-year renovation and was open for “grab and go” service during the pandemic.

On May 20, “Clifford the Big Red Dog and a giant stuffed giraffe moved into their new digs… as they and staffers crossed Fifth Avenue from their temporary home in the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, the library’s iconic research branch, in a procession reminiscent of the Beatles’ Abbey Road album cover,” the Post reported.

The branch with eight floors is “the system’s largest circulating facility,” the Post reported, noting that the renovation and upgrade cost $200 million.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library “features open stacks for 400,000 books, a full floor for kids and teens, and a publicly accessible rooftop terrace,” the Post reported.
