Bronx - Jerome Park Branch Library

118 Eames Place

Branch History

The Jerome Park Branch of The New York Public Library is a spacious, stone-clad building located on Eames Place, one block from the intersection of University Avenue and Kingsbridge Road. Fully accessible to people who use wheelchairs, the one-story facility opened in 1968, replacing a nearby storefront branch that began operation in 1957. The branch reopened its doors on May 3, 2007 after being closed for full renovations that provided more public space, three public restrooms, and the addition of a community room.

If you have kids this place is ideal for day care. Between the hours of 2:30p and 5p. This place is like a school cafeteria. Staff is friendly, security... Eh. But this place is 100 times better since the remodel. I go there from time to time and had my fair share of being there since the late 90s.

It's a great place for kids to play with others, especially with activities they have scheduled.

I don't like visiting this library, the staff is extremely rude and they're full of attitude. One day their going to catch me having a bad day....
