Founded to meet the needs of the New York Botanical Garden’s scientific research, education and horticulture programs, the Library is also open to the general public. Although on-site use of the Library's collections is available to the general public, please consider NYBG membership and all of the great benefits it includes!
As a member of the Public, you may use items from our Research Collection on-site at the Library. Our items do not circulate without a Library card, and the Library is not affiliated with the New York Public Library.
