Congratulations to Our NYC Neighborhood Library Awards Winners!

We’re proud to announce that our Lefferts and Woodside community libraries are grand prize winners in the NYC Neighborhood Library Awards! Lefferts and Woodside each received a grand prize of $20,000, and our Bayside library received a finalist award of $10,000!

A record-breaking 24,000 customer nominations were submitted for this year's awards—an increase of more than 30 percent from last year—and our libraries could not have been successful without the stories shared by people like you in their neighborhoods and communities.

You can learn more about all the winning libraries and how they uplift the lives of New Yorkers by watching these short documentaries by filmmakers Julie Dressner and Craig Marsden.

Congratulations again to Bayside, Lefferts, and Woodside!

The NYC Neighborhood Library Awards are made possible through a collaboration by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and Charles H. Revson Foundation, in association with WNYC's Brian Lehrer Show.
