Branch Libraries: On July 6th, all available New York Public Library branch locations reopened with close to full service, including general library use and seating, unlimited browsing, computer access, and more. See NYPL's reopening page for the latest information.
Research Libraries: The NYPL's research centers have restored onsite access to their collections as part of their phased reopening. Service has been expanded at select locations to permit walk-in patrons who want to sit in public reading rooms, including the Rose Main Reading Room at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, for quiet study, thought, and computer use. And the Grab & Go for Researchers and Research Books by Mail programs are no longer available. Please note that some research divisions require an appointment to view their collections and you may also need to email or book a virtual consultation with a Library staff member before your research visit. Find out more in the NYPL's Guide to Onsite Service at the Research Libraries.
