Yonkers Public Library

Library System


“The Yonkers Public Library was established in 1893 to serve the citizens of the City of Yonkers. In 1903 the ‘Carnegie’ library was built with a $50,000 donation from Andrew Carnegie. There are currently three branches; the Riverfront Branch in downtown Yonkers, the Grinton I. Will Branch on Central Avenue and the Crestwood Branch in the Crestwood section of the city.”

Creative Aging Focus:

Yonkers Public Library participated in several creative aging initiatives beginning in 2009, including projects funded by Westchester Library System and the Helen Andrus Benedict Foundation.
