2022: Bronx Voted Morris Park Library Best Public Library!

Morris Park Library
985 Morris Park Ave
(718) 931-0636 – www.nypl.org/locations/morris-park

Some say it’s the best branch in the Bronx. Any book in the vast NYPL collection may be ordered for pickup at the Morris Park Library. The site housed in an unassuming building belies what’s inside. Its walls house an extensive collection of titles presided over by a knowledgeable staff, an array of programming, and a comfortable space to share with the local community to enjoy reading, researching, or flexing cerebral muscles. This treasure is one to admire. A multi-purpose community draws a following of all ages. A beautifully designed new toddler room is busy with little learners during storytime or just in with parents to peruse some great books. A midday patron might boast of having a quiet stud space, a place of well-needed solitude while students of all ages go in after school to get homework done or help with their projects. With a library card here kids can access so many varied services from manga to computers, and most books ever published.
