New York Public Library, Yorkville Branch

Time Out says

Though the city's made up of five boroughs, it has just three public library systems. The largest—the NYPL—runs all libraries in Manhattan, Staten Island and the Bronx. Hours at the branches vary, but all have a dedicated section of children's books, and many a separate room for the use of kids up to fifth grade. Storytimes, craft and cultural projects, and poetry writing workshops are just some of the offerings on tap; check the website ( for detailed information on each branch.

I grew up in this library as my father was the custodian for about 25 years.  I have memories of this beautiful branch, its wonderful staff and the enrichment it added to my life.  Yes, I remember my father shining the brass door plates, washing some of those large windows and the great pride he took in maintaining the beauty and quality of this library.
