The Inwood Branch of The New York Public Library originated in 1902, when NYPL began providing services to this upper-Manhattan neighborhood in collaboration with the Dyckman Library. Twenty-one years later NYPL expanded its presence in the area when it opened a sub-branch at a private house, and offered services in the study hall of the old George Washington High School and two other locations. In 1952 the full-service Inwood Branch opened at its present location in a three-story building on Broadway, just north of Dyckman Street. Reports, administrative records, publicity material and scrapbook documenting operations of the Inwood Branch of The New York Public Library.
