Opening of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library (SNFL) in New York
11 June 2021



The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library (SNFL), New York’s newest public library, has finally arrived! Watch the opening ceremony.

SNFL, the New York Public Library’s (NYPL) wholly remade central circulating branch, is officially open as of June 1, 2021. The transformation of the library was made possible in part by a $55 million grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), the second-largest one-time individual gift in NYPL’s history.
