The Allerton Branch of the New York Public Library, which opened in January 1960, was designed by the architectural firm of Hertz and Salerni in conjunction with the New York City Department of Public Works. Fully accessible to persons using wheelchairs, the two-floor brick limestone building houses a medium-sized library of 10,000 square feet. The adult, reference and young adult areas are on the first floor while the children's collection and a separate story-hour room are on the second. There is a 74-seat auditorium in the basement.
