About The Campaign to Preserve the Carnegie Libraries

New York Citys collection of Carnegie libraries is the largest of any city in the country. Of the 67 built, 57 branches are still standing. The 54 that remain in operation make up one quarter of the citys public library branches. While there have been additions, roof replacements and window changes over the years, most of the libraries still maintain their distinctly Carnegie look. 13 branches have been designated New York City individual landmarks, and two are also on the National Register of Historic Places. The entire group is a monument to philanthropy and education, and all deserve protection for their architectural and cultural merits.



HDC seeks the services of a professional preservation consultant to conduct research necessary to complete a multi-resource National Register of Historic Places nomination for the Carnegie Libraries. Much of the work has already been completed for the National Register nominations. Starting in 2009, HDC initiated a survey to document the existing Carnegie Libraries throughout New York City.

Qualifications should include experience with architectural resource surveys, experience with National Register nominations, capacity to perform the work, past record of performance, and familiarity with the area to be surveyed.


A stipend in the amount of $2,500 is available.
