Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library
455 5th Avenue | (212) 340-0863
The New York Public Library’s largest circulating branch—the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library (SNFL)—is currently open for nearly full service following a full-scale renovation. Located at the site of the former Mid-Manhattan Library, the new, state-of-the-art library, designed by architect Francine Houben, of Mecanoo, with Beyer Blinder Belle, features services for all ages, thanks to a generous gift from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) and support by the City. The building has been designed and constructed to meet LEED standards, and is in the process of obtaining certification.
