Open House New York invites you to a presentation of the renovation plans for The New York Public Library’s Mid-Manhattan Library, with Iris Weinshall, Chief Operating Officer, The New York Public Library; and architects Francine Houben, Founding Partner/Creative Director, Mecanoo Architecten, and Elizabeth Leber, Partner, Beyer Blinder Belle.

The New York Public Library’s largest circulating branch, Mid-Manhattan Library, is currently undergoing a major renovation to create a state-of-the-art facility that will serve the public in transformative ways. The library, which will reopen in 2020 as the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library, will create a modern library experience in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. Join OHNY to learn more about how this beacon of open access to knowledge and information is being reimagined for the 21st century.

Projects in Planning is an ongoing series of presentations that explore a single project in its early stages of development, to help deepen public understanding of how major projects in New York City are designed and built.
