The New York Public Library

Donate to the Library!

Government funding pays only a portion of the Library's operating expenses. We depend on support from generous individuals like you to help fund our collections, job search resources, access to the internet, literacy classes, children’s story hours, and so much more. Your gift helps keep these vital services FREE for all New Yorkers.
