NYPLâ€™s neighborhood libraries in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Islandâ€”many of which date to Andrew Carnegieâ€™s visionary philanthropy at the turn of the 20th centuryâ€”are being transformed into true centers of educational innovation and service, vital community hubs that provide far more than just free books and materials. Our local libraries play a key role in closing the digital divide, especially for the one in three New Yorkers who donâ€™t have Internet access at home. New York City public school students rely on their local branches for homework help. The cityâ€™s immigrant communities count on NYPLâ€™s English language and literacy classes. Job seekers depend on our comprehensive job search resources. Altogether, the Library offers 55,000 free programs annually, serving everyone from toddlers to teens to seniors.
