The Bronx Library Center, a branch of the New York Public Library, is located at 310 East Kingsbridge Road in the Bronx, New York City, situated just off Fordham Road, and several blocks away from Grand Concourse.
The library opened in January 2006, replacing the Fordham Branch Library, which had served the Bronx previously. At 78,000 square feet (7,200 m2), it serves as the central library for the Bronx, and is the first "green" library in New York City with LEED Silver certification; it also has three times as much space as its predecessor. This building cost an estimated $50 million and is characterized by the sloping curve of its roof and the extensive glass curtain wall on its east façade. The library serves a diverse and growing population, predominantly of Hispanic and African-American background.
The building was designed by the New York City-based architecture firm Dattner Architects, led by architect Richard Dattner.
