Official Site

The imposing main building of the New York Public Library began construction in 1902. It was completed in 1910, but didn't open until 1911 because it took a year to move all 1,000,000 volumes onto the shelves. During the 80s the library was expanded underneath the adjacent Bryant Park to include miles of new shelves to contain its growing collection.
