Don’t miss our party to celebrate summer and the start of the Summer Reading Club! See our magical room transformation, get a balloon animal, do some crafts, and sign up for the reading club.

Now Available: New Museum Passes & Discount Tickets
We’ve added new museum passes to The Frick Collection and Planting Fields Arboretum! Print on Demand museum passes are also now available for some museums. You can print them from home or at the library, and these passes do not have to be returned to the library like our traditional passes. (Cradle of Aviation, Long Island Children’s Museum, Maritime Explorium, and Planting Fields Arboretum do not participate in Print on Demand, but are still available as traditional Pick Up/Return passes.) Also, discount tickets for the Bronx Zoo, Long Island Aquarium, and Splish Splash are now available. Click here for more information.

Computers & Internet 💻
We have computers available for children to use in the Children’s Department. There are four touch screen gaming computers and three internet computers with Microsoft Office. Please bring your child’s library card to sign onto the computers. We also have a 30-minute computer for adults in our children’s room who need to quickly check their e-mail or print something and still keep an eye on their child.

Toys & Games 🎲
The Children’s Department has a great selection of toys to play with while you visit. Board games are available too. We have all the classics including Checkers, Chutes & Ladders, Memory and many more!
