The 125th Street Branch has served East Harlem since 1904. Designed by McKim, Mead and White, this impressive building was built with funds from a grant by Andrew Carnegie. The first floor ceiling is divided into four vaulting, concave sections. The first floor has collections for adults and teenagers. The children's room is on the second floor. Reflecting the cultural diversity of the neighborhood, the 125th Street Branch offers books and magazines in English and Spanish.

In addition, the library boasts a strong African-American Heritage collection. For more information, click here.
