According to the agency’s website, “The Bronx Library Center is the largest public library in the Bronx, with extensive collections of print and non-print materials for adults, young adults, and children. It features New York Public Library’s premiere Latino and Puerto Rican Heritage Collection.

The Bronx Library Center opened it doors to the public on January 17, 2006. This $50m state-of-the-art 78,000 square feet center is NYPL's first green library. It was presented with the LEED Silver Certification Award in 2007.”

The library also houses a theater and gallery.
